Kent Online reports that a horse has died on Tuesday after it was hit by a car. The incident happened just past the St Nicholas at Wade roundabout on the London-bound carriageway of the Thanet Way.
The animal died at the scene. The driver of the Citroen car was taken to hospital in Margate for a check up but later released.
The tragedy happened at about 6.15pm. Police closed closed the London-bound carriageway until about 8.15pm.
Ed: One has to ask what the poor horse was doing on the dual carriageway at dusk? Had it escaped from its paddock?
