October 23, 1992

Two women were treated at Carroll County General Hospital for minor injuries after the van in which they were riding struck and killed a horse on East Deep Run Road a half-mile east of Wine Road early yesterday.

The injured were identified as Lucindy G. Martin, 38, of the 200 block of Barnhart Road, who was driving the van, and Rebecca Simmons, 21, of the 3200 block of Main Street in Manchester.

Three children in the van were spattered by broken glass in the collision, but apparently were unhurt.

Tfc. Robert S. Miller said the Ford van was eastbound on the road about 6:15 a.m. when Ms. Martin saw two horses on the roadway.

She swerved the van in an attempt to avoid the animals, but struck one of them, the Trooper Miller said.

He said the windshield and front quarter-panel of the van was damaged.

Police identified the other passengers in the van as Julie Simmons, 11, of the Barnhart Road address; and Maria Simmons, 5, and Samuel Beluiso, 3, both of the Manchester address.

Trooper Miller said the horses apparently forced their way through a fence on the nearby farm of William Sanders, of the 1900 block of East Deep Run Road, and wandered onto the roadway.

A Pennsylvania company was called to remove the dead horse, he said.
