Police in Fort Collins are looking for whoever threw a firecracker at a carriage horse during New Year's Eve festivities, resulting in injuries to the driver.
Police say the firecracker was thrown while the carriage was carrying a family of four.
Witnesses said one of four teenage boys dressed in black and standing on a corner threw the firecracker.
Police say the firecracker spooked the horse, which ran and collided with a Ford Mustang.
Police say the carriage driver was thrown to the ground and was treated for undisclosed injuries at a hospital. The horse, which broke free in the collision, was captured a block away, uninjured.
