Share this post

Shortly around 4:45pm this afternoon Northwest Indiana's traffic hot line began to ring off the hook with reports of a horse laying on it's side off to the left hand shoulder of eastbound I-80/94 in the Lake Station corridor.  The sight caused several motorists to hit their brakes to take in the sight in addition other drivers thought the horse might have been dead since it was on its side.  
All eastbound lanes of 80/94 were closed as animal handlers rounded up the runaway horse, which they succeeded in doing about 40-minutes later.
All lanes eastbound I-80/94 were reopenned at around 5:35 pm with very heavy volume backing up to between Cline Avenue and Burr Street.
