VIDEO: Pace Car Accident Interrupts Freehold Race

Five drivers taken to Jersey Shore hospital.

On a day when driving conditions were dangerous at times for drivers on the road, the conditions proved to be equally as hazardous at the Freehold Raceway.

According to a report on nj.com the pace car skidded out of control during one race on Friday and hit several horses and drivers. The report said of the seven horses in the race only one was able to avoid being hit by the car and its large gates.

Freehold Raceway race secretary Karen Fagliarone was quoted in the story as saying that all the horses were “okay,” but she did not have information on the five drivers who were taken to Jersey Shore University Medical Center.

With the conditions on the track as they were, why did they allow racing? The accident looked horrendous. I hope all are ok.

My brother works there operating the camera in case if an inquiry. He was shaken up and said he never saw anything like it. He has seen many accidents but nothing like today.

Children need to know that they are special, loved and capable of following their dreams.That's why taking extra precaution is a must. I'm glad I got this panic button service from my friend and it really fits my personal safety measures. I could press a panic button and I would directly be connected with my family or friends as safety networks and a 24/7 call center agents who could escalate my call to the nearest 911 in my place. They could also locate me through GPS location so it's a lot easier to send help if I needed it.
