Apple Creek, Ohio – Officers with the Apple Creek Police Department and Wooster Ohio State Patrol had to make a very unusual traffic stop when they noticed a runaway horse and buggy with no person inside. The horse and buggy were headed down State Route 250.
Knowing that the runaway buggy posed an immediate threat to both human and property, Sgt Smith leaped onto the buggy and managed to pull the horse to a stop. His act of bravery is exceptional for, as one local worded it, “a city boy.”
Once stopped, the horse collapsed from exhaustion and laid on the ground while officers searched for its owner. Once the owner was located, he took control of his horse and drove the buggy away. No information is available on the condition of the horse.Author: Dale Williams <-- Become my friend on Facebook! - Phone: 724-964-6773
