“We were laughing because we were like, ‘Why was there a horse in the Metro?’ ” Gimbel said. After getting back on the highway, the Gimbels saw another horse, flanked by men in yellow vests, along with the truck and damaged trailer that had been toting it. Both horses appeared to be fine, she said.

The Maryland State Highway Administration warned drivers via Twitter to expect delays.
