REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond horse died, last night, after escaping its pasture and getting struck by a car. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says the dark colored horse was walking southbound on Helmholtz, near Elkhorn Avenue, when it was hit broadside by a northbound car, just before midnight. That car was driven by 23-year-old Haley Jo Shaw. 


The animal rolled on to the hood and hit the windshield before falling to the ground. It was still alive when emergency crews arrived but had to be euthanized by an emergency equine vet, at the scene. 

 

Shaw complained of minor injuries and was evaluated by medics. The crash remains under investigation and no citations have been issued.
