"To our surprise as we pulled up a huge horse was running up 684. It was a pretty scary experience. The horse eventually jumps over the median into oncoming traffic," said Larry Hollander.
The family immediately called 911 and started recording video of the large animal in action.
"They were in disbelief there was a horse on 684," said Hollander.
New York State Troopers soon made their way to the horse which was reportedly corralled by a Good Samaritan who was familiar with the animals. The horse had escaped an equestrian event in Bedford, reported LoHud.com.
"It was a small miracle everyone was able to avoid the horse," said Hollander.
The animal suffered a few cuts and scrapes.
