TOWNSHIP A RANGE 2 — A Haynesville man sustained minor injuries after he struck a moose with his car early Wednesday morning.

The crash happened just after midnight on Route 2A in the southern Aroostook township, according to Sgt. Chad Fuller of the Maine State Police.

Jonathan Malone was southbound in his 2013 Dodge Dart when he struck the cow moose, which significantly damaged the roof of the vehicle, Fuller said.

Malone, who was wearing a seatbelt, escaped serious injury but did suffer minor injuries to his forehead.

He refused medical treatment and had a family member transport him to the hospital.

Fuller reminded motorists that moose are active this time of year and to slow down and use caution while operating on Maine roadways, especially at night.

Trooper Adam Bell investigated the crash.
