COPY-Miss. court to review accident case

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has agreed to review a George County case of an accident involving a car and a horse.

The personal-injury case involved a 2008 automobile collision between Diana Ladnier and Diego, a horse owned by Joseph Hester.

The accident occurred shortly after midnight on Jan. 2, 2008, near Lucedale.

A George County judge ruled in favor Hester in 2010. The state Court of Appeals upheld the trial judge's decision last year. The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to hear the case.

The Appeals Court ruled that Ladnier failed to rebut evidence by Hester that his fence was adequate for containing horses.
