Multi-vehicle accident involving a horse near Fayette County fair
On July 31, 2014, around 10 p.m., two vehicles and a horse were involved in an accident. The crash occurred along Route 119 and Ranch Road in Dunbar Township, near the Fayette County fair that was going on nearby.
Fayette County 911 dispatchers said a helicopter was requested shortly after the accident. Several injuries were reported and the horse is said to have been killed in the crash. The first people to arrive at the scene said an individual who was involved in the accident was sitting against a nearby guide rail with leg injuries. Only one person was sent to the hospital by ambulance with minor injuries while the others refused medical treatment.
It is believed that the horse wandered from the Fayette County fair where they have several farm animals as part of their festivities. State police barracks in Uniontown, reported one vehicle hit the horse and then a second vehicle rear-ended that vehicle.
