Messy pileup on I-89 when cars hit moose

Posted: Updated:
GEORGIA, Vt. -

A messy crash tied up Interstate 89 northbound late Tuesday night when multiple cars hit a moose.

Police say just before 10 p.m., a car hit a moose trying to cross the road in Georgia, causing a chain-reaction pileup when more cars and a tractor-trailer also hit that moose, killing it.

Traffic was stopped for about an hour while the mess was cleaned up. The cars had to be towed and the drivers say they were shaken up.

"When we hit it the car went up into the air and then it went over to the side of the highway and I just managed to steer back onto the highway," says Sam Ramelson, a driver from Montreal who hit the moose. "Then I was going and the smoke came out of my motor, the front, so I stopped the car."

State police say none of the drivers were injured in the crash, but an ambulance did take someone from the scene.
