DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Motorists in Dayton experienced delays Monday afternoon due to a crash of a horse trailer.
Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) cameras show that a trailer turned over on to its side on northbound I-75 near Main Street in downtown Dayton. Officers were sent to the scene around 1:13 p.m., where they discovered two horses in the trailer.
According to Dayton Police & Fire, a veterinarian checked the horses out to see if they had sustained any possible injuries. At the time of evaluation, they “appear to be ok.” The horses were reportedly capable of walking on their own.
The driver towing the horse trailer was cited for failure to have a valid license and improper towing.
“The Dayton Police Department would like to remind you to be sure that you have sufficient equipment when towing anything and make sure that everything is properly hooked up prior to transporting something,” Dayton Police & Fire said.
OHGO reported all northbound lanes of the expressway were blocked for about two hours. The lanes have since reopened.
