— Two children and an adult were taken to hospitals after a horse-drawn carriage overturned in Mustang on Tuesday afternoon during a Land Run re-enactment.

The accident happened at Mustang Centennial Elementary School, 700 S Czech Hall Road, during a celebration of the 125th anniversary of the Oklahoma Land Run.

Lara O’Leary, Emergency Medical Services Authority spokeswoman, said the children and the adult were in good condition during transport.

Mustang Schools spokeswoman Shannon Rigsby said there were nine third-graders, a high school student, two teachers and a driver in the carriage, which was led by two horses.

Rigsby said there may have been a mechanical problem with the carriage, which spooked the horses. The horses then acted up, causing the carriage to overturn, she said.
