SOUTH FORSYTH -- Two horses are expected to be OK after a trailer in which they were being transported overturned on Ga. 400 Sunday in south Forsyth.

A Norcross man who was towing the horse trailer was driving southbound on Ga. 400 near Majors Road when the car in front of him reportedly suddenly slowed down, causing him to hit his breaks and lose control of the trailer, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office accident report.

He remained in control of his Cadillac Escalade, but the trailer flipped on its side and slid about 24 feet before coming to rest on the shoulder of the road, the report said.

He and his two passengers were not injured in the incident, and no damage to the Escalade was reported, though he was cited for driving without a license.

United Towing removed the trailer and, according to Deputy Epifanio Rodriguez, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office, the horses were “fine.”
