GALVESTON — A runaway, horse-drawn carriage ran over the driver Sunday, leaving two Canadian passengers to fend for themselves as it galloped down a historic Galveston street and crashed through a picket fence.

Neither the driver, nor passengers Richard Cote and his wife Michelle Cote from Ottawa, Canada, suffered life-threatening injuries during the roughly 11:45 a.m. crash at 17th and Winnie streets while riding on a Seahorse Carriage.

What caused the crash apparently remained in dispute Sunday, as the female driver and her passengers told differing accounts of what happened.
