Escaped Horses Go for Ride on A.C. Expressway

The horses apparently broke free from a nearby farm in Winslow and galloped up the expressway until they were corralled.

The portion of the Atlantic City Expressway in Winslow, Camden County looked a little like the Wild West on Monday evening. 

Three horses and a pony that apparently broke free from a nearby farm galloped onto the highway at rush hour. 

State Police responded at 5:41 p.m. and found the horses running in the westbound lane, with traffic at a standstill. 

A few minutes later, the horses stopped to munch on grass in the center median, said Sgt. Adam Grossman, a state police spokesman. 

Police, with the help of some local horse farmers, were able to corral the animals in to a small area on the right shoulder. The horses' owner arrived at 6:35 p.m., and they were loaded into a trailer to be taken back home. 

Neither man nor beast was injured in the incident.
