Published 4:52pm Wednesday, September 4, 2013

Polk County EMS Director Michael Crater said EMS responded to a barn off River Road just before 12:30 on Wednesday, Sept. 4 to reports of a female with possible head injuries.

“We don’t know the cause of the incident whether she was riding her horse at the time or if the injuries occurred in another manner,” Crater said.

The call came into EMS after the woman’s horse returned to the barn without her. The woman was found with severe injuries and transported to the trauma center at Spartanburg Regional, according to Crater.
