RCMP Holyrood are tweeting about an unusual driving tale.
The driver of a vehicle which struck a moose near Swift Current on the Burin Peninsula during daylight hours this morning got some help from other motorists to get the dead animal off his badly-mangled car, and then continued on the journey, albeit at significantly reduced speed.
He was on his way to St. John’s but RCMP Holyrood intercepted him on the TCH. He was not injured in the crash and told police that he had driven about 170 km with busted windshield and all.
He had to call a tow truck after police stopped him.
Vehicle hit moose then drove 170 kms like this trying to get to St. John's! Can you think of reasons why the driver should not have done so? pic.twitter.com/L6x2rjvQRd
