ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (WCAX) - A moose was hit not once but twice on Interstate 91 south in St. Johnsbury.

Police say it happened Monday around 3 p.m. near Exit 22.

A tractor-trailer was traveling south when a moose apparently went into the road and was hit by the truck. The truck driver then came to a stop a short way down the road.

Several minutes later, police say a man driving a car saw the moose and tried to navigate around it, but was unsuccessful.

Police say his car flipped onto its side and slid along the road before coming to a stop.

Both drivers were uninjured but police say the tractor-trailer has significant damage and the car is totaled.

Vermont State Police were assisted by Vermont Fish and Wildlife and the St. Johnsbury Fire Department.
