    Default Trailer wreck on I-40 near Asheville? Sounds like Jingles are needed

    DH and I were driving west on I-40 this afternoon and noticed a major backup of eastbound traffic. I have seen a couple of posts on Facebook saying a trailer went off the mountain and the people are ok, but they're still working on getting the horses. Haven't seen anything on the news-does anyone know anything? Sounds like major jingles are needed! Hopefully they will be safe soon. Poor horses and people sending major jingles tonight for all involved.

    I'm not local, so I have no clue what's going on, but thoughts/prayers/jingles to everyone involved.

    I saw it on facebook - a trailer hauling 3 mustangs just adopted for the Mustang Million was hit by a car that pushed them off the mountain. Trailer was nearly vertical on the side of the mountain. Last update had all the horses off safely and the people walked away from the crash. Truly amazing.

    Wow!
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    looks like there could have been serious injuries....they sure had their guardian angels with them!

    My lord it is a miracle! Their Guardian angels were looking out for them.
    It hardly seems possible that anyone walked away from that.
    Thank god! I had tears in my eyes looking at the first pic.

    Wow! I did see a muddy track down the mountain while we drove by and noticed they had the heavy duty tow vehicles out, but had no idea it was a trailer until we got home. Here's the news blurb: http://wlos.com/shared/news/features...ed-11509.shtml

    So happy everyone was ok-I can't believe it worked out as well as it did!
