Six vehicles struck the same moose on Interstate 95 near Plymouth Wednesday night, according to WABI.

A southbound car struck a moose standing in the middle of the interstate around 8:30 p.m. The car veered off the interstate and crashed into the woods, injuring the driver and a passenger. One of the injured people was flown to the hospital by a helicopter, but police didn’t release the identities of anyone involved.

The moose’s body remained in the road, and five more vehicles struck it as they drove through that stretch of interstate. Those cars suffered damage, but no one else was injured.

That section of the interstate was shut down for about an hour to allow a helicopter landing and give officials the chance to clear the road.
