The Canadian scenery is beautiful, no argument.
But with that beauty comes the risk of nature throwing a curve at drivers every once in a while.
Take this shark gray C7 Corvette convertible that survived a run-in with a bull moose that was crossing the Trans-Canada highway near Soldiers Pond in Newfoundland, Canada on Sunday night, for example.
Hitting a deer in a Corvette is terrifying enough, but striking a moose in your Stingray? Had to be scary for the two occupants of the car, but somehow the man and woman weren’t seriously hurt, requiring only treatment by paramedics on the scene.
Sadly, it was a different story for the moose, which was killed by the impact when it slammed into the windshield of the Corvette. Photos from news reports reveal the badly shattered windshield, and news reports say the passenger compartment also suffered damage.
Apparently this isn’t an unusual occurrence as The Telegram reports that this section of the Trans-Canada has been the scene of multiple moose-vehicle collisions just since spring.
The Trans-Canada Highway travels through all ten provinces of Canada from the Pacific Ocean on the west to the Atlantic on the east. The main route spans 4,990 miles across the country, one of the longest routes of its type in the world.
We’re just glad the passengers in this Corvette survived the harrowing incident as some quick research on the Web revealed that a moose can weigh as much as 1,500 pounds!
