Two horses are dead, after being hit by a pickup truck.
The Pitt County woman who owns the animals tells WITN that she's devastated.
She says three horses got out of their pen on Mills Road, just down the street from Blackjack Simpson Road. Two of those horses were hit and died, just after 7 p.m. Wednesday night.
Highway patrol has not released the name of the pickup truck driver, or whether that person will face any charges.
We're told the driver was not injured.
