VAIL, Colorado—Firefighters in Vail, Colorado rescued a horse trapped in an upended trailer Monday morning on eastbound Interstate 70 after a one-vehicle accident…. The trailer had become separated from a 2000 Ford truck traveling from Rifle to southern Mexico after a blown tire caused the vehicle to start fish tailing. The trailer was tipped over on its rear with the hitch in the air and the horse inside when rescuers arrived on the scene. With the help of Eagle veterinarian Sylvia Stocker, rescue teams removed the horse from the trailer by cutting a flap out on the roof. The horse was able to walk out on its own.
