DENVER (AP) — The Colorado State Patrol says two people are dead and three are injured after a crash involving a horse and three vehicles near Wiggins.

The Fort Morgan Times reports (http://bit.ly/16Zo7jV ) a minivan collided with a horse that was on Interstate 76 on Sunday night, fatally injuring 66-year-old passenger Carol Ricketts of Nashville, Mich.

A Chevrolet Venture then struck the horse and rolled onto the driver's side in the left lane, killing 71-year-old Walter Ruthenburg, of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

An Audi A4 sedan then collided with the Venture, went off the highway and through a fence. The Audi driver sustained serious injuries, and his passenger sustained minor injuries.

The minivan driver also had minor injuries.

The accident killed the horse. Troopers say it wasn't immediately clear how the horse got loose.
