Officials say an 86-year-old woman, a 10-year-old old girl and a horse were killed when they were struck by a vehicle on a dark road in Dixie County.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the girl was riding on the horse as Minnie Melba Delaney led it across the road Tuesday night. A minivan driven by 39-year-old John Henry Mash hit them.
Delaney died at the scene. The child, Emma Maria Mercado, was airlifted to Shands at the University of Florida where she died early Wednesday.
Trooper Tracy Pace says the woman and child were neighbors.
Mash told troopers he didn't see the woman, child and horse. Charges are pending.
