Four horses from a herd that escaped from a farm in Iowa were killed along Highway 61.

More than a dozen horses escaped from a farm near Dubuque on Monday night.

The owner managed to recapture most of the animals, but four ran to the highway.

A truck-and-trailer unit hit the horses, as did a car, which rolled as a consequence. Two of the three occupants suffered only minor injuries.
