An injured horse, possibly struck by a car, is running down Route 77 near Herkimer Road in Darien. The brown and white horse is said to be hobbling quite a bit as though it has a broken leg. Law enforcement is en route.
UPDATE 3 p.m.: A passerby reported seeing a man wearing an orange hat walking the horse. A person is going to take an officer to the home where he thinks the man took the horse after corraling it.
UPDATE 3:17 p.m.: The horse was found safe and sound. "It's a lame horse and was never involved in any accident with a vehicle," says the officer.
