A moose on the highway led to a crash that killed one person, police say.
The collision happened around 5:30 a.m. CST Saturday on Highway 16, near Langham, Sask. about 35 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon. RCMP say the moose was initially hit by a passenger van and the animal was knocked into the opposite lane of traffic.
A pickup truck then hit the moose, causing that vehicle to crash.
Police said two occupants of the truck were ejected in the crash and that one of them was pronounced dead at the scene. There was no word on the condition of the other people involved in the collisions. RCMP were still investigating and notifying next of kin of the dead person, who was not identified.
All that - and not a single word about the condition of the moose.
