66 Year Old Man Dies after His Vehicle Hit a Moose in Newfoundland


If driver's on Newfoundland and Labrador's highways aren't dealing with perilous black ice, they are confronted by large 800 pound (364 kilo.'s) moose which barely move when hit by a motor vehicle, given their size and weight

A 66 year old man, from Lewisporte, Newfoundland, was driving on the Trans-Canada Highway on Saturday, October 8, 2011 with three (3) passengers in his car.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. this driver came across a moose, standing in the middle of the Trans-Canada Highway near Red Cliff and his car came into contact with the moose.

As a result of the accident and after having sustained serious injuries, the Lewisporte man was subsequently airlifted to a hospital in St. John’s.  The three (3) other passengers in the car were treated for their non-life-threatening injuries.

The 66-year-old driver subsequently died as a result of his injuries.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police would not disclose the name of the driver.
