B.C. Woman Hits Moose on Way to Visit Sister Who Hit Moose
National Post ^ | June 22, 2010

Posted on 06/24/2010 11:59:54 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Two sisters from the northwestern B.C. community of Kitimat have both had close encounters with moose on the loose.

A month ago, Yvonne Studley, 49, was badly injured when she hit a moose with her vehicle, so last Friday her sister decided to visit her in Vancouver General Hospital.

But sister Connie Everitt, 51, also hit a moose and ended up in hospital.

In the first accident a month ago, Studley was on her way home from a business trip when a moose ran in front of her car.

The animal went through the windshield and landed on her, breaking her wrist, arm and hand, fracturing five of her ribs and causing bleeding in her brain.

The pregnant moose died near the collision.

When Studley came out of her coma, Everitt and her husband Steve decided to visit her.

She and her husband were in two cars last Friday afternoon. Everitt, in the first car, was going around a corner near 70 Mile House, B.C., when she saw “a brown blur.”

“I knew right away it was a moose,” she said. “I slammed on the brakes with both my feet.”

“It was like two explosions.”

She was taken to the hospital in nearby 100 Mile House, B.C., with mostly soft-tissue injuries.

The coincidence of hitting a moose just like her sister “really threw me for a loop.”

“My first thought was, ‘Are the moose going out [on a] hunting season for my family?”’ Everitt said.

Moose are involved in about 8% of all wildlife vehicle collisions, according to the Wildlife Collision Prevention Program’s website.

“Moose will often try to avoid vehicles by running along a highway,” added Jeff Knight, spokesman for B.C.’s Ministry of Transportation.

A mouse once bit my sister. And my sister once bit my cheese, so I bit her. The mouse got away.

If he watched where he was going, instead of running down poor Coco Crisp, and possibly other mascots since, maybe people wouldn't be hitting him.

I’m sure someone has already asked, but was anyone bitten? And, what happened to the cheese? Was the sister in the shower when the other one hit the moose, and vice versa? Details! I need details! ;) [Maybe I should read the article now?! LOL]

This has got to be one of my all-time favorite headlines, right up there with the one about the dwarf in the forest. That was from last year, and I wish I had saved it.
