"Horse in M4 crash near Membury Services"

From the BBC:

A number of vehicles were involved in a serious crash on the M4* after cars hit a horse running across the carriageway.

The M4 was briefly closed eastbound between junctions 14, Hungerford, and 15, Swindon East, after the smash near Membury Services at about 04:45 GMT.
Thames Valley Police said the crash involved five vehicles, including a van which overturned.

The male driver was freed by fire-fighters and taken to hospital. The horse died at the scene. Police confirmed no-one else was injured and said the van driver is not thought to have life-threatening injuries.

* It's not clear how a horse can affect the broad money aggregate quite so disastrously, but hey...
