Four Horses Die In Collision With Car

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Four horses have been euthanized after being hit by a car.

Lexington police say the four yearlings were struck Thursday morning by a car driven by 21-year-old Andrew Jackson of Georgetown.

The horses belonged to Lane's End Farm. Lane's End president Bill Farish told the Lexington Herald-Leader that the horses got loose at about 7 a.m. and were being led to a barn when they were spooked.

Farish says six yearlings ran from their handlers, went out a gate and ran into the street. Farish says one yearling avoided the car and another turned back before the collision.

Jackson was taken to University of Kentucky Hospital for injuries that aren't considered life threatening.
