A passenger car struck and killed two horses Monday night along Highway 47 about three miles north of Highway 26 in Washington County, police said. 

A 2013 Hyundai Sonata driven by an adult female was traveling northbound on Highway 47 when it hit two horses who were loose on the highway. 

Oregon State Police, Washington County Sheriff's Office and Banks Fire District responded to the incident. 

One horse was killed on impact. The other horse was seriously injured and later euthanized by a veterinarian at the owner's request. 

The vehicle was badly damaged and the driver received a minor hand injury, but refused hospital transport. The driver's name was not made available. 

Oregon Department of Transportation personnel removed the deceased horses.

One lane of traffic was open for two hours.
