    May said the moose fell into the vehicle and bounced up hitting the back of the car and then hitting the highway.

    Glad everyone's ok.

    Someone get the suspension & brakes. Save the CVT for Fummins.

    A moose is a tall beast. It's bulk probably missed the sensors that would set off the air bags.

    It was good to read that no one was seriously hurt, & the driver survived! A smashed up car can be replaced. That had to be a scary moment.

    The Mirage may not be 'moose-proof'. But can we at least now call it 'moose-resistant'?

    Wow, that is some good damage. It is awesome that he was able to walk away from that.

    WOW they're lucky to be alive! Moose suck to run into especially in a car, outcome is usually far worse than that.

    I wonder if the moose survived.

    I am Moose of Borg. Resistance is futile.

    Yeah, that girl is really lucky she wasn't driving faster.


    Simplify and add lightness.
