SALINE COUNTY- Two horses were killed in a single vehicle accident just north of Gypsum Wednesday morning.

Edward Conway, 60, of Gypsum, had just left Gypsum and was headed west on Kansas Highway 4 when his 2020 Kia Sportage struck two horses in the roadway at approximately 5:50 a.m. Wednesday, according to Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan.

A miniature horse that was killed was found on the roadway. A full-sized horse that died was found in the ditch.

The horses were among several horses from Gypsum Stables that had gotten out, Soldan said. Gypsum Stables is owned by James Branscum.
