1 Horse Dead, 1 Injured After Being Dragged On Florida Roadway


Officials say a horse kicked through the floorboards of a truck trailer that was carrying it on Thursday on a Florida roadway.

Authorities in Fort Pierce said that the horse was dragged along the roadway for about a quarter-mile before the driver of the trailer realized what had happened. That horse died, and another was injured as a result of the incident. 

No humans were injured, and no other vehicles were involved, according to authorities. 

Tammy Hayes Beville with Tours on Horseback says they were on their way to the beach and that the injured horse has a bandage on its leg.

Police don't expect charges to be filed and say the incident appears to be an accident.
