WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Police confirmed late Thursday that two horses were killed on Wednesday night when they were struck by a vehicle traveling southbound on Route 7 not far from the New Ashford town line.

Jeana Brouder of Lanesborough and a juvenile passenger were riding in a a 2011 Ford F150 when their truck hit the animals, Police Officer Shuan N. William said on Thursday.

Both riders were transported by Village Ambulance to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, where they were treated for minor injuries and released. The horses — a full-grown adult and 5-year-old miniature horse — were dead when police arrived at the scene, William said.

No citation was issued to Brouder in the accident, which was reported to Williamstown Police just after 9 p.m. Wednesday.

William said police have identified the owner of the horses but declined to provide the name because the accident is still under investigation. Police have not determined how the horses got loose and wandered onto the highway in the 700 block of the New Ashford Road section.

Route 7 was shut down for 1 hour, 45 minutes. Responding agencies included state police, Lanesborough Police, Williamstown Fire Department, and the state Highway Department, which assisted in removal of the animals.
