PROMINENT trainer Kevin Pizzuto and his staff member, Karen Crouch, are recovering from a road accident this morning.
Traveling to the track to work several horses, the duo found themselves in shock after crashing into another vehicle and subsequently a tree.
“I was driving to do track work when a woman pulled out in front of me at a Stop sign,” Pizzuto explained.
“I t-boned her and then ended up hitting a tree. I don’t know how it wasn’t a lot worse.”
While Pizzuto is bumped and bruises, Crouch is nursing several broken ribs.
“I hit me head on the windscreen and am sore and bruised, but okay,” Pizzuto said. “Karen has broken ribs and a nasty cut to her head.
“When we got out of the truck and I realised no people had died my concern went straight to the horses.
“Thankfully they are all fine. They have been X-rayed and given the all clear, which is good news.”
