An inadvertent gate left open on property under the care of Amy Williams one mile north of Joseph was the reason that a $3,000 horse belonging to Brian Temple of Wallowa was struck and killed by a vehicle late in the evening, Aug. 6. The vehicle driven by Gail Schmeck of Joseph received extensive damages.

Schmeck received a minor injury to her hand in the accident reported slightly before 11 p.m. that Tuesday.
