The Fayette County Sheriff is looking into why approximately 40 horses were running loose on a roadway, one of them being struck by a semi.


At about 3:30am Monday (Aug. 3), deputies were called to the accident scene, in the 1,000 block of "C" Avenue, about 2 miles north of Lamont.

An initial investigation determined a southbound semi driven by 66 year old Henry Jones of Harpers Ferry, struck one of nearly 40 animals in the road.

The 2005 Mack Semi was totaled; no injuries were reported.
