GOLD CANYON, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Two people were critically injured at the Lost Dutchman Days Rodeo when a horse-drawn stagecoach hit several vehicles.

The accident happened just after 1 p.m. Saturday.

The horses apparently got away from the coach driver, and the stagecoach ran into three cars and then a pickup truck.

The injured people were taken to Banner Desert Trauma Center with head injuries.

Both injured persons were on board the stagecoach.

The horses were walked from the scene to be evaluated by owners.

They are expected to be OK.
