Posted September 4

— One person is dead, two others injured and draft animals had to be destroyed after a truck rams into a horse-and-wagon train in western North Carolina.

WLOS reports (http://bit.ly/2gG9oej) some members of the hobbyist group behind the wagon train say they planned to ride in Monday's Labor Day parade to pay tribute to the man killed in the Friday's wreck.

Witnesses say the truck crashed into the wagon train caravan traveling along a two-lane highway near an recreational vehicle park about 35 miles west of Asheville.

One man died and the State Highway Patrol said two people are hospitalized. At least one horse was put down at the scene.
