Orlando, Florida (AP) --

Police say a man rear-ended two mounted volunteers and police horses in downtown Orlando.

Authorities say one volunteer suffered non-life-threatening
injuries and was taken to a hospital after the Friday morning
crash. The other volunteer declined medical attention. They were
part of the police Department's volunteer program.

It wasn't immediately clear if the driver will face charges.

The horses will be seen by a veterinarian to evaluate their
injuries. One horse suffered injuries to his hind area and another
had a mouth wound.

Authorities say the crash occurred as the volunteers were headed
to the Amway Center.
