Motorist Unaware That Horse Trailer Rolled Away

June 26, 1990

WATERFALL, Pa. (AP) _ Jesse Wert found his runaway horse without a hitch.

Wert, of Elizabethtown, telephoned state police early Tuesday to report he had lost his horse and trailer while driving west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Wert said he did not realize the animal was missing until he got off the highway in this south-central Pennsylvania town.

Troopers found the trailer and the unharmed horse almost seven miles back along the side of the road. The trailer had coasted to a stop along the shoulder of the westbound lane.

A truck driver who saw the unhitching caught up to Wert at the exit and told him what happened.
