PCelt. *karro- ‘wagon’ < PIE. *krso- v. 'to run' (IEW: 583) (RM) 2. Lat. carrus m., LLat. carrum n. 'wagon' <- PCelt. *karro- ‘wagon’ < PIE. *krso- 'run' (RM). "Several Gallic words for special types of vehicle were adopted in Latin, and one of these is the most prolific source of European loanwords" (CDB). OE hors 'horse' has been connected with this root: "The affinities of the word outside Germanic are uncertain: the conjecture that Germanic *horso- , pre-Germanic *kurso- was from the root *kurs- of Latin currere ‘to run’ is favoured by many; but other derivations have also been suggested" (OED). 1.
