Multiple vehicles disabled after striking moose

Vt. State Police - 9:10 am Wed Jul 10th, 2013

On 07/09/2013 at approximately 2152 hours State Troopers assigned to the St.

Albans Barracks responded to mile marker 111 on Interstate 89 in the town of Georgia, VT after receiving a report of multiple vehicles becoming disabled after striking a moose.
The subsequent response and investigation revealed that four vehicles (three sedans and a tractor trailer unit) were involved in the chain-event that started when a single vehicle traveling northbound struck a moose as the moose attempted to cross the Interstate 89 roadway.
After the first collision, a second vehicle and then third vehicle struck the injured moose as it remained in the roadway. The collisions continued as a fourth vehicle - a tractor trailer unit - obliterated the moose creating mass organic debris.
Northbound traffic was impacted for approximately one hour while organic and inorganic clean-up was conducted. The three sedans were towed from the scene while the tractor trailer unit was driven undamaged from the scene.
None of the operators were injured as a result of these collisions.
