A tragedy unfolded in California recently involving a miniature horse. Apparently, the small horse got loose and wouldn’t let anyone catch it.
Trisha Aragon was attempting to catch the horse. Instead, the miniature horse galloped into the street and continued running. Aragon also ran into the street, pursuing the horse in an effort to get a hold of the animal. She was struck down by a car and killed in the process of trying to get the miniature horse off the street.
The fatal accident occurred on Grand Avenue near Ontario Way in early morning just before 6 a.m.
According to investigators who are attempting to reconstruct what happened leading up to the accident, Aragaon and her daughter were rushing after the escaped horse, trying to stop it from running into the street. They were unable to stop it in time and the animal ran into traffic. Aragon was right behind it when she was struck by the car.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Aragon’s daughter was not injured.
Eventually, the miniature horse was caught. The animal was taken to the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter in Jurupa Valley.
