Horses Killed

Dozens of horses killed in truck crash

Dozens of horses were killed when a tractor-trailer truck carrying about 50 horses overturned in southeastern Indiana yesterday. The Dearborn County Sheriff says three people who were in the truck were treated for minor injuries at the scene. About 20 of the horses survived and were loaded into other trailers and taken to their destination. Police say the truck was heading south on State Route 1 near Greendale when it skidded off the roadway while making a turn. The truck rolled on its side and struck a utility pole, starting a small fire. The owner of the horses is identified as Jodi Ramey of Flemingsburg, Kentucky. She had purchased the horses in Minnesota and was transporting them to her farm in Kentucky to be resold as riding horses.
