A carriage horse took off through downtown Savannah plowing into parked cars and scaring pedestrians.

The horse took off from the west side of Ellis Square, running down Congress Street, still pulling the carriage.

A surreal scene unveiled downtown ending with a horse in an alley, its driver at a local hospital.

The horse apparently got "spooked" by something and started running taking the driver and five passengers along for the wild ride.

The driver of the carriage was taken to a local hospital with what appeared to be broken ankles.

The five passengers, including three children, did have to jump from the carriage but they suffered only scrapes and bruises.

The horse escaped unhurt.
