Horses were loose on an Industry freeway Sunday night after the trailer they were in overturned in a traffic accident, a California Highway Patrol officer said.

The accident occurred about 10:40 p.m. on the southbound San Gabriel River (605) Freeway at the eastbound Pomona (60) Freeway, said CHP Officer David Porter.

It was unclear if any people or horses were injured, Porter said.

The trailer was being pulled by a pickup, he said.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known and it was unclear how many vehicles were involved, he said.

The right two lanes were temporarily closed, he said.

Hi. I just missed the accident by five minutes. I saw the trailer on it's side, the back side exposed w/ two horses inside and they were not moving.(they looked dead) Gravel was heavily all over the first three lanes of the 605 frwy and the tires of the trailer were in the carpool lane and a small car bumper in the middle lanes.

Seeing the horses looking lifeless was haunting. I hope truly I am wrong and hopefully no people were injued also. I look forward to reading fresher updates to this accident.

My co-workers knows the person involved in the accident. And unfortunately, one horse was badly injured and had to be put down. The other horse did have one laceration, but he is doing fine now.
