FRESNO, Calif. -- A trailer overturned with a horse inside on a highway in Madera County Monday afternoon.
A man driving a semi truck entered Highway 99 near Avenue 9, but realized he was going the wrong way so he made a u-turn, but was hit by a truck driver with a horse trailer. The trailer overturned with a horse inside and it became trapped.
CHP officers, firefighters and good Samaritans at the scene helped pulled over to help free the horse. "They said there was a horse stuck in the trailer, so I grabbed the evac from the Butte Fire supplies I have in my car, jumped into action and did what I could to get the horse out," Turlock resident Bobbie Carne said.
A firefighter was injured in the rescue after the frightened horse stepped on his foot.
Officials said the firefighter and horse are going to be fine.
