ST. LOUIS, Mo. _ There are new calls this morning for more restrictions on horse carriage rides in downtown St. Louis. It comes after an accident caught on camera this weekend.

A woman and little girl jumped off the ride on Saturday when the horse got loose, running until it hit a car and came to a stop. The two passengers walked away shaken, with some bruises and a swollen ankle.

Alderman Joe Vacarro is calling for more restrictions on horse carriage rides. The ride company owner, Teddy Randazzo, says the incident happened after the horse was stung by a bee.

The horse's bridle came loose after the bee sting.

Two of them did but two were still on when the horse took off.
