According to the California Highway Patrol PIO Omar Valdez, at around 11:50 p.m. Daniel Macias, 23, of Willows was driving southbound on I-5 in his 2008 Hyundai, just north of Corning Road, at the same time two horses were attempting to cross the highway.

Macias then crashed his Hyundai with the side of one of the horses, ultimately killing one horse, said CHP.

Moments later a 2008 Chevrolet 2500 pickup, driving behind Macias, crashed into the second horse, causing the Chevrolet to spin counter-clockwise on the highway and kill that horse.

The Chevrolet then skidded across the number two lane, crashed into the first horse and the car continued to slide off the right shoulder, exit the road backward and crash into a fence.

Macias was later sent to Enloe Medical Center with major injuries, luckily the driver and passengers on the Chevrolet only sustained minor cuts and bruises.

The collision caused I-5 southbound to be closed for a brief period of time, according to CHP.
