TOOELE — Two horses were killed Friday when they were hit by a vehicle after getting out of their corral and wandering onto the highway.
The vehicle, carrying an elderly couple who were injured in the collision, was traveling south on state Road 36, east of Rush Valley, just after 10 p.m.
Utah Department of Safety spokeswoman Susan Thomas said the vehicle struck the horses on the passenger side, sending the passenger, via helicopter, to a trauma center with several lacerations. The driver was also injured, but was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
The names and conditions of the injured were not available Saturday.
The horses died from injuries sustained in the collision and the highway was closed for about an hour as the scene was investigated and cleared.
