Council chiefs say they are working to see if the Grade II monuments in Audenshaw can be salvaged.
A 34 year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving after he destroyed a famous Tameside landmark with his car.
Locals said they heard a loud bang and saw the car had mounted the pavement and crashed at a junction known locally as 'The Trough' in Audenshaw.
The Trough takes its name from the granite horse drinking trough which has sat at the Y junction of Manchester Road and Audenshaw Road since 1879.
