July 6, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
Late night motorists on a Southern California freeway may have thought they were back in time, in the Old West. The drivers had to share freeway lanes with horses for a while Sunday night.The California Highway Patrol says a trailer carrying the horses overturned on the transition road from the southbound 605 Freeway to the eastbound 60 Freeway in the city of Industry.

Just like a good Western, the situation turned out well in the end. The horses were eventually rounded up and there were no injuries to the horses or people.

At least two freeway lanes were shut down while the roundup was completed.

The cause of the accident was under investigation on Monday.
