A woman from Estill County, Kentucky died, and two other people were injured, as a result of a car accident involving a horse that was standing in the road known as KY 52, near Irvine. According to the Estill County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 5:30 a.m., two vehicles struck a horse that apparently got out of a pasture and was standing in a road.

Reportedly, the first vehicle to hit the horse was a 1996 Chevy Blazer driven by Brenda Wolfinburger, 56, who was traveling eastbound on KY 52. The impact pushed or knocked the horse into the westbound lane, which was when the second and oncoming vehicle, a 2002 Saturn operated by Lois Reeves, 60, hit the animal. Reeves’ car was then caused to veer into the eastbound lane and struck head-on the 1996 Ford pickup driven by Charles Samples, 57.

All three drivers were transported by EMS and admitted for treatment at Marcum and Wallace Memorial Hospital in Irvine, Kentucky. According to deputies, Reeves was declared dead at the hospital. The condition of the other two drivers was not known at the time. The horse was killed in the accident.
