A terrible accident has happened in Cottage Grove, Oregon. Unfortunately, five horses were killed because their trailer rolled over.
A pickup track that was transporting five horse in the back of its trailer did not notice the semi-truck that was parked in front of him on the southbound of the freeway. He would have seen the semi-truck if he hasn’t been distracted by an accident on the northbound lanes of the freeway.
Austin Thompson, the driver of the pickup, was together with his sister Natalie. They both got injured and had to be transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center. The two of them suffered some serious injuries, but they will recover after a good medical treatment.
This tragic accident was sad news for the horse community. Five horses lost their lives and we hope this kind of thing to never happen again!
