Owner of horses involved in accident says he may face lawsuit
“If people are still unhappy with the decision, they can go to the Florida Department of Insurance.”
Elizabeth Carle, the driver who struck two horses on Griffin Road last month, feels lucky to be alive.

FIRST OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD NOT DRIVE FAST IN LANE THAT HAS HORSE RIDING PLUS THERE ARE SIGNS ON THE ROADS. CAN'T PEOPLE SEE THAT???? AND MOST OF ALL THE INSURANCE COMPANY SHOULD PAY THE OWNER OF THE HORSE THAT WAS KILLED AT LEAST PAY FOR VET BILLS....AND ITS NOT NEGLIGENCE. I'M A HORSE LOVER AND I'VE SEEN PEOPLE RACE THROUGH STREETS AND THERE ARE HORSES RIDING AND THERE ARE KIDS ON HORSES...THAT SCARES ME...AND I THINK THAT'S NOT FAIR FOR THE OWNER WHO LOST HIS HORSE. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS PEOPLE SHOULD BE MORE CAREFUL IN DRIVING.
