Highway 17 traffic quickly came to a halt shortly after 10:30pm tonight just North of the Sault after a car and moose collided. The car was travelling Northbound when a moose attempted to cross the highway resulting in the collision.
A witness at the scene told SaultOnline that the driver was ok and was being transported to the Sault Area hospital to be checked out.
The OPP were on scene to remove the animal, which had succumbed to its injuries, and a clean-up crew who were quickly removing debris to clear the highway.
Anybody transiting the area, please use caution.
