Savannah is the Georgia city that's supposed to be somewhat quiet, impossibly quaint and beautifully quirky. And few activities are more Savannah than a horse-and-buggy ride through the city.
What was supposed to be a passive sight-seeing activity this week, though, became an adventure that nobody involved is likely to forget.
WSAV has obtained a copy of the surveillance video from downtown Savannah that shows a spooked horse bolting through the streets, plowing into parked cars and scaring pedestrians, not to mention the people in the buggy itself. The voice in the background is a call to emergency dispatchers.
The horse apparently got spooked by something and started running, and its driver and five passengers had no choice but to go along for a wild ride.
The five passengers, including three children, did have to jump from the carriage but they suffered only scrapes and bruises.
The horse was calmed and escaped unhurt.
