A car struck and killed a moose on the Trans Canada Highway near Paddy’s Pond early Sunday evening.
According to the RCMP, the car hit the animal after it changed lanes to avoid hitting another vehicle that was slowing down in order to avoid hitting the same moose. The car landed in a ditch after it hit the moose.
The driver and passenger were sent to hospital with what were described as non-life threatening injuries.
Traffic was slowed but still moving in the area as the scene was cleared.
