Walsh and the two horses entered the roadway in the path of a 1998 Honda driven by a 28-year-old woman headed eastbound for unknown reasons, the CHP said.

Walsh was thrown from the horse and suffered moderate injuries as a result, the CHP said. One horse was killed and the other suffered major injuries along with a compound break to its leg, the CHP said.

Walsh, the CHP said, was found to have consumed alcohol prior to the collusion.

The driver of the car and the three passengers insider were uninjured.
