Driver Swerves to Avoid Horse in Road, Hits Another Car in Leelanau Co.

Two drivers and a horse are OK after a crash in Leelanau County.

Wednesday morning deputies responded to a call about a two-vehicle accident on South West Bay Shore Drive near South Richter Road in Suttons Bay Township.

They say one of the drivers was headed south on West Bay Shore Drive when he found a horse in the road.

When he swerved to avoid it he crossed the center line, hitting a northbound vehicle.

Neither of the drivers were hurt.

The horse was found a short time later, also uninjured, and returned to its owner.
