A WOMAN has sustained head injuries, & all 3 horses survived after her car flipped while towing a horse trailer on a 100km/h stretch of highway at Inverleigh.
The tow vehicle was well maintained and fitted with good tyres, the float rollover cause is unknown but investigators believe that the rear tyre blow out was due to something on the road surface.
There are not many horse floats that would stand unto this type of incident. This Rowville Horse Trailer did, as all Rowville Horse Trailers are built strong to protect you and your horses during incidents like this. Notice the side walls are still perfectly straight – even though the float completely rolled over. These side walls are the reason the 3 horses all survived the incident.
Information for this was sourced from the Rowville float owner and also the Geelong Advertiser, See more info from;
