This case involves a harness driver involved in an accident on the track. On this particular occasion, the car pulled away from the horses, went into a spin at the top of the first turn, spun around and the right wing of the vehicle was struck by one of the horses. This caused the wing to open and block the path of the other horses, some of whom ran over each other and struck the starting gate. One of the equestrians was thrown up in the air and struck by the horse, suffering serious injuries. It is alleged that the operators for the pace car did not control the gas pedal during the approach to the start of the race resulting in injuries.
