Car vs moose
Two people were hurt in a car versus moose crash in Maine. The crash occurred around 1:00 a.m. on the southbound Turnpike (I-95) in Scarborough. The car struck the moose, then rebounded and collided with a passing tractor trailer. The driver, Jordan Andujar, was taken to a hospital in Portland with non-life-threatening injuries. The moose was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident has forced police to put up signs warning drivers not to let moose lick the salt from their cars. The moose lives in Jasper National Park and people often stop their vehicles to get a glimpse of the animals. While these animals are not aggressive, they can become habituated to people and pose a threat to drivers. Therefore, it is best to drive away from a car when there is a moose nearby.
