Horses Delay Traffic on the Belt Parkway … Yes, Horses

NBC Universal, Inc.

Expect delays on the Belt Parkway Wednesday morning, there's a lot of horse traffic.

Yes, horses.

A horse trailer overturned Wednesday morning on the westbound side near Coney Island Avenue, temporarily closing multiple lanes. While the animals were ok, they had to be removed from the trailer and walked off the highway to the nearest exit.

Video from the Citizen app shows a woman in riding gear calmly walking multiple horses down the side of the highway as befuddled onlookers stare.

As of 6:40 a.m., one lane was reportedly still closed.

This is a developing story.
