Canterbury horse trainers Margo Nyhan and Peter Davis are in hospital with broken bones after being involved in a high-speed collision on Wednesday morning.

The pair were travelling to the Rangiora races in a truck laden with five horses which was impacted front-on by a car at an intersection in Templeton.

One horse, Game Changer, had to be euthanised on site after suffering serious injuries while the remaining four were removed and transported to a nearby stable.

It is understood a couple of the surviving horses have injuries, too.

St John Ambulance issued a media alert saying three people were taken to Christchurch Hospital in a serious condition after Police initially reported two people being in critical condition.
