Traffic chaos near Hatfield after horse and cart crash
A MAN was taken to hospital this morning (Tuesday) after a car collided with a horse and trap – bringing chaos to motorists.
Traffic is backing up on both sides of the A414 between Hatfield and St Albans, after a beige Suzuki Grand Vitara collided with the horse carriage to junction three of the A1(M) at around 7am.
The horse carriage toppled into a ditch and both lanes of the A414 were closed as paramedics from WGC treated the carriage driver, a man in his 20s.
He was taken to the QE2 Hospital in WGC with a minor head injury. The horse suffered bruising.
