Man charged with reckless driving horse and lorry simultaneously

HorseA Polish farmer could be facing jail after he caused a road accident by being in charge of a horse and a lorry at the same time.

Things started to go wrong for 62-year-old Leszek Stepien when his truck broke down.  Cunningly, he decided to use his horse to tow the vehicle to the garage for repair, while he steered.  Unfortunately, he couldn’t steer straight.

The horse-lorry adventure came to an abrupt end when he managed to steer the lorry into the path of an oncoming  car, then into a roadside railing, tipping the truck over. Somehow, everybody managed to emerge from the crash unscathed.  Stepien clambered out of the cab and began yelling at the horse “This is all your fault”

Some reports suggest the situation may have been complicated by the horse attempting to put the moves on an attractive mare.
