Moose Collisions, North Country

On the evening of Friday, May 20, 2016, Troopers from the New Hampshire State Police-Troop F, responded to three separate motor vehicle collisions involving a moose within three hours of one another. The first collision occurred at around 7:04 PM on US RT 2 in the town of Randolph where a 1991 Toyota occupied by a single male occupant struck a moose. Another occurred at around 9:32 PM when two vehicles reportedly struck a moose on Interstate 93 in the town of Sugar Hill. A third collision occurred at 9:50 PM when a 2009 Dodge Caravan, occupied by an elderly couple, traveling northbound on NH Route 110 in the town of Stark and struck a moose. Each of the involved vehicles was heavily damaged in the collisions and luckily there were only minor injuries reported in each of these cases.

The New Hampshire State Police-Troop F would like to remind motorists that wildlife, including moose and deer, is on the move and can often be in the roadway at all hours of the night and day and especially difficult to see after dark. Please slow down, be sure your vehicle is equipped with adequate lighting and arrive to your destination safely.
