Full title: Truck carrying fireworks hits moose on Trans-Canada Highway, shuts down road for 5.5 hours and lights up the sky

A truck carrying fireworks hit a moose near Wawa, Ontario, early Friday morning, shutting down the Trans Canada Highway for five-and-a-half hours and creating an impressive fireworks display as the truck burned.

At about 1 a.m. on Friday morning, a truck reportedly carrying goods for Purolator, including fireworks, struck a moose about 40 kilometres outside the town of Wawa. The fuel tanks on the truck ruptured causing a large blaze.

The driver and a passenger in the truck were unharmed, the Wawa-news reported, though they escaped with just the clothes on their backs.

My closest run in with a Moose was when I went by an accident site where a moose went thru the front windshield of a car on the highway in northern Michigan,not a pretty sight.

Yes, an encounter can be hideous. Moose are not predictable.

Wawa is also the best fast shopping quicky mart type store in my neck of the woods.

I know deer have gone through their windows but never a moose....
