BRIDPORT, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a horse that ran onto a road died after being struck by two vehicles.

Police said 38-year-old Eric Baker of White Hall, New York, was traveling northbound on Route 22A in the town of Bridport at about 3:30 a.m. Friday. He called police, saying he thought he had hit a moose.

Before the call was placed, the horse was hit by a second vehicle. Both vehicles were damaged but able to be driven away and the drivers were not injured.

Police said it’s believed the horse died quickly upon impact. They have not been able to identify the owner of the brown and blue roan, shoeless gelding.
