A Colossal Cropper

This terrifying tossed salad of tumbling horses, flying men, spinning sulky wheels and splintered shafts marked the end of a recent trotting race in Sweden. The race came a colossal cropper when the hind legs of a horse named King Rollo (right) suddenly buckled beneath him. Rollo went rump over mane, his driver shot forward almost out of the picture (left), and the horse and driver of the sulky just behind piled into the mess. By a miracle, everyone survived.
