Quesnel RCMP say weather played a role in a crash that killed a horse north of the community Monday.
Investigators say a south-bound vehicle towing a horse trailer lost control on Highway 97 during heavy rain, causing the trailer, with two horses inside, to roll.
One of the horses died at the scene while the other was transported for treatment at a vet clinic.
The highway was closed for a short period of time while emergency responders attended.
There were no other injuries.
