Traffic on Highway 431 South at Cave Springs was shut down for nearly an hour after two horses were hit by two drivers. One horse died on the road and another was taken to be treated by a veterinarian. 

According to a woman who lives in the area, the horses belonged to people who just moved to the area three days ago. The same neighbor told us the horses were somehow able to get out of a newly erected fencing.

The horse that died was buried by police on the owners' property. WAAY 31 did not see the owners of the horse return home. We were told by police they were with their other horse at the veterinarian clinic.

None of the drivers involved in the accident were hurt.
