TULSA, Oklahoma -- Five horses fell off a trailer Friday as it was traveling along I-44 at Riverside Drive.

Troopers say the driver transporting the horses--at speeds of 60 to 65 miles per hour--was apparently unaware of what happened and continued on.

Troopers managed to round-up all five horses and placed them inside another trailer owned by a passing motorist who stopped to help.

At least one of the horses suffered a broken leg and all of the horses suffered scrapes and cuts.

Troopers say the horses had just been purchased at auction.

Troopers are currently looking for the driver that was hauling the horse trailer.
