ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A moose appears to be at the centre of a nasty chain of accidents in eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.
Police say a truck and moose collided Tuesday evening on the Trans-Canada Highway near Holyrood, damaging the vehicle but not injuring the driver.
As the police began clearing the scene and directing traffic, another vehicle was seen speeding out of control toward the accident site.
The vehicle struck the rear section of the truck involved in the moose collision, became airborne and rolled twice before landing on the police vehicle.
The 28-year-old male driver was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Earlier this month, the provincial legislature voted to look at ways of preventing vehicle collisions with moose, including erecting fences and improving lighting.
