Driver, 41, re-bailed after horses killed in crash

A suspected drink-driver who hit a group of horse riders in Winkfield last month has been re-bailed by police.

The 41-year-old, from the Winkfield area, was arrested after his black Audi A4 hit three horse riders in Hatchet Lane on December 8.

He answered bail at Maidenhead Police Station today, where he was bailed to appear at the same station on February 22.

The driver failed a breathalyser test and was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving and driving without due care and attention.

One horse was killed in the crash while two others had to put down at the roadside by a vet.

An adult and child were also taken to Frimley Park Hospital by ambulance and air ambulance after suffering serious fractures, facial injuries and suspected head injuries.
