CHESTER, Pa (CBS) — A harness driver is in critical condition after a tragic accident on the track at Harrah’s Philadelphia in Chester, Delaware County.

It happened during a harness race on Sunday when a horse apparently took a bad step around a turn, which caused a collision involving four horses and their drivers.

One driver, identified as Anthony Coletta, was seriously injured when he was thrown from his harness into the air, landed on the track and then was trampled by one of the horses.

Coletta was taken to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where he remains in critical condition.
