SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating whether a suspected drunken driver is responsible for a hit-and-run crash that killed a Northern California woman’s two miniature horses.

The Press Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2ohUzxb) the California Highway Patrol suspects Ronald Rennert’s vehicle was the one that plowed through a corral and struck both of the woman’s horses in Penngrove early Saturday. The animals were later euthanized.

Sgt. Andrew Henkens says car parts matching the Oakland man’s Honda CRV were found at the crash site and the vehicle had front-end damage that included tufts of animal fur.

Police say an officer arrested Rennert later that day after spotting him swerving his vehicle on a roadway in nearby Petaluma and noticing the damage to the car. Police say he appeared intoxicated.

The incident remains under investigation.
