A corpse being transported from a funeral home ended up falling out of a van on the highway following a five-car crash in New Jersey.

Three people were hospitalized, none with serious injuries, and the horse in the trailer was able to escape the crash unharmed and was seen eating grass by the side of the highway before another trailer picked it up. 

Pictures of the scene show several cars mangled and one car with all its airbags activated. 

Brittany Garabedian, who was driving the white jeep that was rear-ended, said she came to a stop because of traffic and the next thing she knew the trailer slammed into her car. 

‘It always comes to a dead stop by the Garden State Plaza,’ Garabedian told the Daily Voice. ‘I have a habit of looking in my rearview after I brake, and I saw a trailer flying and not slowing down. 

‘At that second everything happened – loud tires screeching with boom, boom, boom and boom!’ she said describing the four other cars colliding. 

Garabedian was hospitalized with a concussion and other injuries.

‘I was hit so hard my rear glass ended up on the hood of the Jeep,’ Garabedian said. 

‘I hit my head and nose so hard on the steering wheel I couldn’t move or get out to help anyone else.

‘It felt like a dream,’ she added.. ‘Very scary. The EMTs and paramedics were so helpful.’
