Woman killed, daughter injured after vehicle hits horses on highway near Gostivar


A woman was killed and her 10 year old daughter was injured in a car accident on the Tetovo – Gostivar highway. The car, driven by the father, hit three horses who made their way to the highway and were walking on it unattended.


The Citroen C5 vehicle carrying the family from the village of Mala Recica near Tetovo hit the horses at full speed. Paramedics took the injured passengers to the hospital in Gostivar, but doctors there were unable to help the mother. The daughter has light injuries and has been released from the hospital.


Over 100 accidents caused by animals on the road are reported annually on this highway which runs through densely populated farmland. Few days ago, a vehicle plowed into a flock of sheep, but with no human casualties.
