Woman killed in horse cart crash
BLOOMSBURG - A woman was killed and her husband injured in a horse cart accident Wednesday near Millville.
State police at Bloomsburg said Linda G. Craver, 58, of Millville, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 7:02 p.m. crash by Columbia County Deputy Coroner Ron Taylor. Her husband, David Craver, 58, was listed in fair condition Thursday at Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.
According to a release from investigating officer Trooper Kevin Jancewicz, the couple were riding in a two-wheel, single horse cart on a private dirt lane near their farm. For an unknown reason, the horse pulling the cart no longer responded to commands and went down a steep embankment planted with corn. The cart flipped, ejecting both passengers.
According to the (Bloomsburg) Press-Enterprise, the private road and field are owned by the Carvers and are across the road from their residence along Route 442.
