ODESSA, TX (KWES) - Late Saturday night a horse was killed in a one car incident near the 600 block of Golder street in Odessa.

Officials at the scene told us the horse was being ridden on the side of the road when a dog spooked it, causing it to buck off its rider. The horse then ran into the middle of the street where it was struck by a truck.

The truck then veered to the side of the road and was later declared totaled. The two occupants of the truck were sent to a nearby hospital with minor injuries and are expected to be OK.

The horse was killed at the scene.
