Horse hits the highway in Texas

(KPRC) It’s something you don’t see every day, not even in Texas.

A police dashcam mounted to a patrol motorcycle captured the drama Thursday when a horse escaped from a nearby yard and wound up on the I-10 Katy Freeway feeder road.

Officers were desperately trying to get the animal out of traffic. In the dashcam, you can hear her galloping down the road with the officer following close behind on his motorcycle. Drivers can be seen pulling over to get out of the way.

“Oh the horse. Yes, she was very scared,” David Brown, an animal control officer in Katy, said. “The main part was get it off the road.”
