Security cameras in downtown Savannah, GA captured dramatic images of a runaway carriage after something spooked the horse.

The carriage plowed into several cars, and scared pedestrians. The driver and five passengers were pulled along for the ride.

At one point, bystanders run up to the carriage and try to help the people on board. Another camera angle shows a car backing very quickly out of an alley, and the horse running out at full speed.

The driver of the carriage was hurt in the accident, according to reports.

Eventually, the horse ended up unharmed in an alley.  Police are investigating what sparked the incident.
