Hampton University’s Horses Wander Onto Interstate Highway Causing Massive Traffic Jam

Rush-hour traffic on Interstate 64 near the campus of Hampton University came to a standstill recently when all eight horses from the university’s equestrian program escaped from their stable and wandered off campus. Three of the horses made it onto the highway. A five-mile backup occurred while state police caught the horses and escorted them back to campus.

Officials at Hampton believe that someone deliberately let the horses out. Additional security measures have been implemented to restrict access to the stable.
