Experienced drivers have learned to pay attention to the road and try to anticipate the actions of those around them. Unfortunately, even the most seasoned motorists can be caught off guard by unexpected obstacles, which can lead to serious or even fatal car accidents. One Wisconsin woman was killed when her car struck an animal in the road.
Wisconsin officials responded to reports of a one-car accident along a local road. According to the preliminary investigation, the 53-year-old driver struck a horse that was apparently in the middle of the street. Though emergency responders attempted to apply life-saving techniques, the woman was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.
