BUCKMAN (AP) -- A Morrison County man died after his car hit a horse on a foggy night, Morrison County authorities said Wednesday.
Raymond Murphy, 37, Hillman, died at the scene after his car struck the horse about 9:45 p.m Tuesday on a county road about nine miles east of Buckman, which is about 16 miles southeast of Little Falls, Deputy Dan Eastvold said.
Eastvold said the horse somehow had gotten loose and out onto the road. Murphy hit the animal and his car went into the ditch.
The heavy fog apparently was the main factor in the crash, Eastvold said.
The horse was killed in the crash, he said.
