Authorities are investigating a crash that killed more than half a dozen horses on a central Minnesota highway Saturday morning.

It happened near the city of Wadena just before 7 a.m., when a cargo truck "struck and killed 7 horses" that were on Highway 29, according to a tweet from the State Patrol:

The driver of the cargo truck was not injured, the State Patrol says.

The horses belonged to "an Amish community," though it's not clear why they were on the roadway at the time.

The State Patrol is now investigating the incident.

Well...sun coulda been in the person's eyes..there coulda been a hill. The horses coulda ran into the road right in front just before as a herd. The owners should be thanking their lucky stars none was hurt or killed. That's negligence on their part. Their not very good Amish for not checking their fences now are they!!
