COLLISION WITH HORSE
Motorist's Peril In Dark
A well-known Illabo business-man, Percy Boyton, had a fortunate escape from serious injury last night when, driving near Junee, a horse jumped at his car. Fortunately, Boyton was driving along slowly when he came upon a mob of horses on the roadway. As he passed one animal jumped at his car one of the animal's feet going through the windscreen. The horse then rolled-over, hit the front of the car and damaged the mud-guard and the radiator.
