Tourist killed on island of Sark

A tourist has been killed in an accident involving a horse-drawn carriage on the Channel Island of Sark.

The Swiss woman, aged in her 60s, suffered serious head injuries when she was thrown into the road with seven other tourists and the driver.

They were touring the island when the carriage hit a hedge and rolled over.

All nine were taken to Guernsey by boat and transferred to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital. The woman later died from her injuries, the BBC reported.

One of the other tourists also suffered a serious head injury after the incident yesterday.

Sark is one of the few remaining places in the world where cars are banned on roads. Only tractors and horse-drawn vehicles are allowed.
