A horse escaped the crash onto the road but was then struck by another vehicle.

A vet was called to look at the horse which was badly injured with a broken leg and heavy bleeding.

An equine vet was then called and the horse was put down at around 10.50am. The road was still closed in both directions an hour later as the horse’s body was removed.
