PUEBLO, Colo. — Kelly Reno, 18, who played the boy marooned with a beautiful horse in the 1979 film, "The Black Stallion," suffered a broken leg and possible internal injuries in a car accident early Monday, a spokeswoman for St. Mary Corwin Hospital said.
Reno, of Pueblo, was involved in an auto accident, along with 15-year-old Lynette Tuttle of Pueblo, said hospital Nursing Supervisor Cherry Trimble.
Reno's mother, Ruth Reno, told the Colorado State Patrol that her son said he was driving at the time of the accident.
Trimble said Reno, who is listed in serious condition, suffered a collapsed lung and possible kidney injuries in addition to the broken leg. Tuttle is being treated for a broken ankle, abrasions and contusions, Trimble said.
