Sherman Man Hits Moose on I-95
Two people were injured Wednesday night after their car struck a moose on Interstate 95 in Oakfield and was then struck by a tractor-trailer.
State Police say 30-year-old Christopher Allen of Sherman was driving south in his 2005 Ford Focus around 9:20 p.m. when he struck a moose that ran into the roadway.
After hitting the moose, Allen was struck from behind by a 2010 Peterbilt tractor trailer operated by 60-year old Freddie Brown of Woodland. Police say Brown attempted to avoid a crash by going off into the ditch, but was not able to avoid Allen’s car.
Allen and his passenger, 35-year-old Jessica Price, were transported for non-life threatening injuries to the Houlton Regional Hospital by the Houlton Ambulance Service. Brown was not injured. The moose was killed in the crash.
