Horses Loose on Virginia Highway Jam Morning Traffic

Transportation officials say three horses wandering along Interstate 64 stopped eastbound traffic at the Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel for about 30 minutes Tuesday morning.

A Virginia Department of Transportation spokeswoman said state troopers rounded up the horses, which were taken to a garage at the tunnel until animal contol officers could arrive.

A VDOT spokeswoman said authorities got the call about the loose horses about 5:45 a.m., after drivers and VDOT employees in the tunnel control room spotted them.

The horses are believed to belong to Hampton University.
