Driver seeks £3.8m in compensation following collision with horse

Driver seeks £3.8m in compensation following collision with horse
A driver who sustained a severe back injury during an accident involving a horse is seeking a multi-million pound compensation settlement.

According to Horse and Hound, David Owen drove into one of the creatures that had strayed from a farm in Evesham - a small town near Worcester - on the A46 early on the morning of February 25th 2008.

The beast landed on top of his car, which crushed him and broke his neck in four places as well as causing serious damage to his lower spine, the news source added.

Mr Owen's collision occurred when the horse escaped from Parks Farm House in the town of Evesham and, as a result of the accident, he required surgery and now suffers from headaches, as well as pain in his legs, back and neck.

Therefore, the 62-year-old can no longer work and is suing the owner of the animal, Amanda Johnson, for £3.8 million.
