Horse freed from crashed trailer in Rochester
The horse inside this trailer ended up sideways for a while this morning until rescue crews could sedate and remove it after a crash in Rochester.
ROCHESTER — One man was hurt Wednesday morning in an accident involving a truck pulling a horse trailer, and the horse inside spent a harrowing time sideways before rescue crews could free it.
The accident happened about 6:45 a.m. at the intersection of Salmon Falls Road and Highland Street.
Police reported that a 2005 Chevy pickup driven by Jessica Lawler of Rochester was pulling the trailer and heading east on Highland Street when the trailer was hit by a 1997 Chevy pickup driven by James Drown of Somersworth. Police said Drown was traveling northbound on Salmon Falls Road when he collided with the trailer at the intersection.
Drown was transported to Frisbie Hospital by EMS personnel for apparent non-life-threatening injuries. Police said he was not wearing his seat belt.
Police enlisted the help of staff from the Myhre Equine Clinic in Rochester to sedate the horse so fire personnel could extricate it from the trailer.
Police say the horse was removed and appeared to be unharmed.
Lawler was issued a warning for failure to yield to traffic control devices, according to police.
