Horse and trap man dies in crash
A man was killed and his teenage son injured when a car crashed into a horse-drawn carriage in County Durham.

Terrance Wood, of Coundon, Co Durham, was driving his four-wheel trap along the A689 when he was hit from behind by a Nissan Micra car on Thursday evening.

The impact caused him to crash into a trap in front being driven by his 14-year-old son, Lewis.

Mr Wood, 40, died in the crash and the driver of the car, a Stockton woman, was treated for shock.

Lewis was taken to the children's intensive care unit at Newcastle General Hospital suffering from a fractured pelvis and concussion.

One of the horses was put down following the incident.

Durham Police are appealing for witnesses.
