It was a quiet night in the Treasure Valley and Boise mountains, with loose horses on Idaho 55 the only serious public safety issue reported by emergency dispatchers.
The incident came less than 24 hours after an Emmett motorist was killed and three others were injured by a horse on Idaho 16. Alma Sanchez, 43, died after her car hit the horse at about 5 a.m. Monday.
A friend of the owner of a couple of horses that were loose on Idaho 55 on Tuesday morning near the Long Branch Saloon in Horseshoe Bend notified Boise County Dispatch that he was trying to wrangle the horses.
At about 3:20 a.m., Idaho State Police dispatched a trooper to the area to be sure that the horses were secured and off the highway.
"By the time they got up there, there was nobody there," an ISP dispatcher said.
