A MAN and a woman broke their necks when they were flung from a pony and trap in a road crash in Surrey last night. The smash happened at 7.32pm when the pony and trap crashed with a green Volvo estate on the A22, Eastbourne Road, in Blindley Heath. The pair on board the trap, a local male in his 40s and a woman from Croydon who is in her 30s, were thrown onto the road as a result of the impact. The man was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting with lacerations to his face and what police described as "a serious broken neck". The woman was taken to East Surrey Hospital in Redhill with a fractured neck. The driver of the Volvo, a man in his early 60s from Buckinghamshire, was not injured. The road was closed in both directions for a number of hours. Surrey Police have appealed for anyone who witnessed the incident, or the manner of driving or riding of either vehicle prior to it, to call them on 101, quoting P13287885.
