ATLANTA A man hurt when a car slammed into his horse-drawn carriage as he showed tourists the sights of Atlanta has filed a lawsuit against a motorist.
Donald Borchardt was taking three Atlanta visitors on a tour of downtown in April. Witnesses told police as many as three cars were
racing and a black Lexus slammed into the back of the carriage.
Borchardt's attorney, Anthony Kalka, said he was thrown 30 feet in the air and landed on a car hood.
Kalka says his injuries included six broken ribs, a broken clavicle, a fractured neck and a head injury.
Police have said they arrested the driver of the Lexus, who was charged with following too closely, driving too fast for conditions
