GRANTS PASS, Ore.-- A horse is walking away from a trailer accident that could have been much worse. Rural Metro says around 2:21pm on Tuesday afternoon, they were requested to help with an extrication of a horse from an overturned trailer.
The trailer apparently separated from the tow vehicle while driving on Lonnon Road near Elk Lane. The trailer rolled into a ditch. The horse inside was wedged, and several community members jumped into action to help the people and horse that were affected. A veterinarian also came to the scene to assist.
Rural Metro was able to use hydraulic cutting tools to remove a backup bar in the trailer, and the horse was able to get out with only a few scratches.
