I’d really like to see a moose some day....just not this way. 😳😳😳😳



MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Two people were hospitalized after multiple vehicles hit a moose in Marquette County. One driver was pinned in her truck and had to be extricated.

The collision with the moose happened Friday night on M-95, a quarter mile north of County Road FH. No names have been released.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office reports a 55 year old South Republic man was driving his 2015 Toyota pickup north on M-95 in Humboldt Township. He came up on the moose hitting its head. The body of the moose swung around hitting the side of the pickup, smashing the windshield. The driver was able to pull over to the side of the road.


About the same time, a 50 year old Arizona resident and her passenger were driving south in a 2009 Dodge Ram truck. They slowed down after seeing a dark object in the road but collided with the moose laying in her lane. The truck went up and over the moose, the driver lost control of the vehicle, sliding sideways off the road into the ditch. The truck then rolled over twice, coming to rest on its wheels.


The driver of the Dodge Ram was pinned in the vehicle. The truck’s roof pushed down on her. The Jaws of Life were used to get her out. She was taken to UPHS-Marquette along with her 48 year old New Mexico passenger.


The driver was treated for head and neck injuries. The passenger had minor injuries. The South Republic man in the other vehicle was not hurt. It’s unknown if the moose survived the collision.


Isaiah 33:24  "And no resident will say: “I am sick.”

I've heard that hitting a moose is worse than hitting any other animal because they are so tall. A vehicle will hit the legs instead of the body and the body will fall onto the driver.

Yes.  It flies right through the windshield and hits the car's occupants.

Same thing with a horse. :(
