EPHRATA — A 24-year-old Moses Lake man died early Monday morning after his vehicle struck a horse in the highway near Ephrata.

Armando N. Capetillo died at the scene of accident, which happened just before 2 a.m. on Highway 28 about two miles west of Ephrata.

The horse had thrown its rider and ran into the road, where it was struck by Capetillo’s pickup truck, said State Patrol Trooper Darren Wright.

The horse also died, he said.
