BERLIN, Md. (AP) — A national park says a member of its herd was hit by a car on Maryland's Eastern Shore near Virginia.

The Daily Times of Salisbury cites a Facebook post from the Assateague Island National Seashore that says the 2-year-old stallion known as Adriana's Yankee Prince was hit by a motorist on the Route 611 causeway Monday night.

The driver reported the incident and was not injured.

The horse was found Tuesday morning with a swollen left hind leg. But park officials say he was able to place full weight on the leg and move around without much difficulty. He also had a small cut over his left rib cage.

Park wildlife staff will monitor the horse.

An investigation is ongoing.
