LOUISA, KY. -- A call came in to 911 at 10:20 p.m. by Ryan Caudill of Louisa that a horse was in the road on Route 23 across from Quality Metals. Caudill pulled off the side of the road and turned on his emergency blinkers to make people aware and to prevent the accident.

But it didn't work.

The next driver came through, Todell Castle of Ashland moving into the fast lane to avoid the car and then hit and killed the horse. Castle then pulled off in front of the Jeep on the shoulder of the road.

Passengers from the initial vehicles involved exited in an effort to check on the horse. While outside of their vehicles a third car driven by Katlyn Meadows of Barboursville, WV came through also hitting the horse and lost control of her vehicle and swiping Terina Evans of Ashland, Ky. who was walking the scene and checking on everyone.

Sheriff Garrett Robert stated that Evans was flown by Health Net and the last he had heard was that it had broken her femur, but she is stable.

The owner of the horse can be held responsible.

Who's horse was it?

It really doesn't matter who's horse it was so don't worry about it!!!!

It does matter to a point cowboy, perhaps the owner has other horses that you would like to plow into.

It is sad when people are worried more about the Horse than the Woman being Hit by a car and could have been Killed but she wasn't Thank GOD People need to get their Priorities in Line Human Life is More important than a animal and YES I Like Animals but there is a Place for everything so don't say I am a Animal hater because I am NOT a Hater but I do know what the Priorities are
