A horse trailer came loose from an eastbound vehicle towing it on Interstate 44 earlier this afternoon, sending the trailer careening off the highway, according to Springfield police.
The horse trailer ended up striking several cars parked in the Doctors Hospital parking lot.
There were no injuries, and there was no livestock on the trailer.
A van, braking to avoid the loose trailer, was rear-ended by a car in the eastbound lane of I-44. No information was immediately available regarding the conditions of the people involved in that accident.
