SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An 18-wheeler carrying about 30 horses slams into another car at the intersection of Highway 155 and 271. The driver of the 18-wheeler says the axle broke preventing him from stopping at a red light. He says that the truck began to jack-knife as it went through the intersection and hit the other vehicle.

Police say the woman driving the other car was taken to ETMC with non life-threatening injuries.

The trailer with the horses did not overturn. No horses were injured in the crash.
