A minivan left the highway, and went down over a steep embankment. A portion of the guard rail went down with the minivan.
RCMP say when they arrived at the scene, there wasn’t anybody in the vehicle. Further investigation revealed a 41-year-old man from Gander had lost control of the van when he swerved to avoid striking the moose.
He sustained minor injuries as a result.
