A woman from Sussex has been charged with drink-driving after her car collided with a trailer carrying two horses.
The incident took place on 3 April at 3.25pm on the A271 at Herstmonceux, near Hailsham.
30-year-old Jemma Williams’ car collided with a 4×4 towing a trailer.
The trailer overturned and struck two other cars, a Citroen and a Ford.
Two horses broke free from the trailer and bolted down the road.
They were captured nearby and treated for cuts and grazes by a vet.
Williams, of Court Lodge Close, Lower Dicker, and a passenger in the Ford were treated for minor injuries and shock.
Williams was arrested and later charged with drink-driving.
She was released on bail to appear at Hastings Magistrates’ Court later this month (20 April).
“A red Mini One car, driven by a 30-year-old woman from Lower Dicker and travelling east, was in collision with a grey Land Rover Discovery, driven by a 53-year-old man from Bexhill-on-Sea and towing a trailer, travelling west,” said a Sussex Police spokesman.
“The trailer overturned and struck two other vehicles, a white Citroen DS3, driven by a 59-year-old man from Hailsham and a white Ford Ecosport, driven by a 51-year-old man from Ringmer.
