The Compass - - SPORTS -

Three peo­ple were trans­ported to hospi­tal af­ter a truck hit a moose near Dunville last week.

Ac­cord­ing to Pla­cen­tia RCMP, a Brink’s se­cu­rity truck was trav­el­ling north on Route 100 last Wed­nes­day when it struck a bull moose and rolled into the ditch.

An SUV right be­hind the truck also struck the moose, which was eu­th­a­nized.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened at around 7 p.m.

All three pas­sen­gers in the truck were taken to Pla­cen­tia Hospi­tal, where they were treated and re­leased.

The driver of the SUV was not in­jured.

In a news re­lease, po­lice said moose are more likely to ap­pear along the side of the road be­tween dusk and dawn, there­fore mo­torists need to pay ex­tra at­ten­tion to the edge of road­ways.
