Was the horse from that farm on ( that was having all those problems and complaints)onSandwich Road
Poor Cobalt. Heartbreaking.
Driver did not stay on scene, driver fled. A passerby stopped and stayed on scene.
So sad I heard this on my scanner
CLOSE THE STABLE DOWN RIGHT NOW!!!! How many more horses will die before this is done. ENOUGH!!!!👎🤬
That's terrible. So sorry for the driver, who must be saddened by the accident
- barn girls involved safely & softly approached, but horses inevitably spooked by oncoming traffic as they crept further and further towards busy street. one of the two is deceased.
sandwich rd. - everybody flies. 45-55mph is the local normal. (and i know i’m definitely not far off in saying that). no blame. but observation as a frequent of sandwich rd. (who isn’t?)
some errors included in this/FPD’s post are slightly off to actual events occurred.
vehicle was not within 500ft of scene post impact. at 6:09P - time of my arrival, vehicle involved was not in eyesight range. operator allegedly slowed with hazards down carraige shop, parked @ top of blueberry ln. - & it was after a short while, after being approached by FPD did they disclose the event.
along with first hand witness.
to those concerned - the world’s most professional equine’s fall off and seriously injure themselves, their horses too may fall. some may pass to pasture accidents, and we, even on the smallest scale - we may lose horses to riding accidents, trail accidents or car accidents.
the cape has seen it’s share of equine disaster.
Cobalt had a gentle morning with Truro, his partner in crime and myself sunbathing in their paddock with breakfast.
this could happen to anybody. incredibly unfortunate.
thanks to those who’ve offered concern & care. smithfield appreciates the genuine well wishes.
One of my biggest fears as a horse owner. So scary, I'm so sorry.
I hope the owners of the horse sue the poor excuse for a farm. Hopefully ppl finally Remove all their horses and the mspca take the rest of them away .
It’s been what almost two years now how much more negligent can this farm be !
This is truly heart breaking I can’t imagine how the owners feel..
Terrible thing to see. Hopefully he didn't suffer.
Poor horse... very sad
What a sad story...😪
Does anyone know where the horses came from?
Vehicle Vs Horse? Is that headline supposed to be funny? Bad form Falmouth PD. Really bad form.
Inaccurate report of the incident
I saw this and it was just so awful. The poor baby. It was awful....

Rt. 151 is closed in the area of the Rt. 28 cloverleaf interchange. Officers are at the scene of a crash involving two commercial vehicles- a box truck and a dump truck towing a small excavator. Serious but nonlife-threatening injuries were reported. ... See MoreSee Less
Soooo, when is the town going to put a traffic light there? Sounds like people are seriously hurt. Deadly intersection. I lived there for 20 years. Very hard to pull out on to 151 and it's a guessing game as to which road people are turning on to when you see a blinker on when they are turning off of 151 to the other 2 roads.
So many accidents lately hope everyone is ok prayers for all involved
Cranes... I hope your guys are ok.. we love them❤️❤️
Prayers for all involved
I hope everyone is okay!
This is what happens when the State puts no money on this side of the bridges. All the roads were last design in the 60s.

The person injured is my boss. He just called me through a video chat. Is face is swollen, but is being drained. He will have surgery to have his jaw wired shut. No other injuries on him, especially from the pictures I've seen. He's in good spirits about it, evening joking. But thank you everyone.
Where are the 4 orange safety flags on the corners?
I heard meds flights serious is backup rescue my prayers to all
