Santo resident Lana Bosley died Thursday night after the horse she was riding (not the one pictured) was struck by a Ford pickup as they rode along the Interstate 20 frontage road. The horse she was riding also died.

SANTO – Santo resident Lana Dawn Bosley, 46, was killed Thursday evening after being struck from behind by a truck while riding her horse.

The accident occurred at 6:12 p.m. on the Interstate 20 south frontage road, near mile marker 380 and Farm-to-Market Road 4, according to Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Jason Dudley.

According to Dudley and Vada Bosley-Wampler, the victim’s mother-in-law, Bosley and her youngest son, Grady, 16, were riding separate horses westbound along the feeder road when she was hit from behind by a 1986 Ford pickup truck driven by Glen Wayne Brierton.

“It happened near the edge of the roadway, at this point we believe she may have been on the road. The vehicle was westbound, so were riders. The vehicle struck the horse from the rear,” Dudley said, adding that the incident and driver are still under investigation.

Bosley was taken by air ambulance to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth and died at approximately 9:30 p.m. Thursday, he added.
