BRUSSELS — A woman was killed on Tuesday night in Handzame, near Kortemark, when the motorbike she was riding collided with a horse.

The woman and a male neighbour were both riding home on a motorbike when the accident occurred.

They rode into the Edewallestraat — a rural road between Handzame and Edewalle — shortly before 2am on Wednesday.

Both the man and woman fell from their motorbike after colliding with the loose-running horse.

The man was able to contact police, but it took some time before attending officers found the woman in a roadside canal.

Emergency services tried to reanimate the woman but to no avail.

The man was taken to the hospital in Torhout suffering from minor injuries.
