LENHARTSVILLE — Pennsylvania State Police say a horse was killed in a highway accident when a trailer dislodged from a pickup truck and crashed down an embankment.

Trooper Michael Koslosky says the accident occurred at about 3 p.m. Thursday on Interstate 78 in Greenwich Township, Berks County.

Police identify the driver as 56-year-old Patricia Kenefic, a horse trainer from Redding, Conn. Authorities believe the pin holding her hitch failed, causing the horse trailer to roll down the steep ravine.

Police say several motorists stopped to help, and a local veterinarian responded to the scene.

Koslosky says a second horse in the trailer survived, and was able to walk back up to the highway to another waiting trailer.
