A hit-and-run driver slammed into a horse in New Jersey, leaving the animal dead and its 14-year-old teen rider injured, according to a report.
The crash occurred Tuesday night in Gloucester County, nj.com reported.
The teenager, a resident of Sicklerville, was riding the horse on the shoulder of Monroeville Road alongside a 21-year-old man from Camden riding a second horse, in Franklin Township shortly before 8 p.m., local police said.
Cops are looking for an older-model, light-colored pickup truck in connection with the callous crash, police said.
The injured teen was taken with non-life-threatening injuries to Cooper University Hospital in Camden, where she was listed in stable condition, police reported.
The doomed horse died at the scene and was turned over to its owner, nj.com reported. The other rider and his steed were not injured.
