The driver told police that he was on his way to his cottage when a moose bolted from the east side of the road. He struck the animal as it crossed the highway in front of him.
Neither he, nor his passenger, had been injured but the vehicle, a Chevy Yukon SUV, had to be towed from the scene.
The moose had run off into the bush and was not located.
