Horse escapes farm in Ontario County causing traffic jam on Thruway

A horse from a farm in the town of Farmington made its way onto the New York State Thruway on Saturday.

The traffic back-up lasted nearly two miles, according to drivers and transportation officials.

State police said the horse suffered a leg injury, but its owner was able to place the horse in a trailer and return it to the farm.

The incident took around 50 minutes to clear from start-to-finish.
