SEATTLE (AP) — A 4-year-old girl who was among five people hurt when a spooked horse bolted through a crowd at a Washington state fair has been released from a Seattle hospital.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Sunday that the girl's 38-year-old father remains in serious condition in intensive care.

A vendor was with the horse and an empty carriage at the Southwest Washington Fair in Centralia, 80 miles south of Seattle, when the horse became frightened Friday. Lewis County spokeswoman Paulette Young said five people were injured, and that four of them were hospitalized.

It wasn't clear if any of the other victims remained hospitalized Sunday.
