Moose causes two crashes on I-29 in northeastern ND

THOMPSON, N.D. -- A moose wandered onto Interstate 29 in eastern North Dakota on Thursday night, causing two crashes.

The North Dakota State Patrol says 32-year-old Scott Gulsvig of Moorhead was driving south on I-29 about 7 p.m. and hit the moose.

A short time later, the patrol says, a semi driven by 58-year-old Conley Cumming of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, hit the same moose as it lay on the highway.

Gulsvig was treated for minor injuries. Cumming was not hurt.

Trooper Ryan Panasuk says the moose was in ``pretty rough shape' after the crashes. He describes the moose as a young one, with no horns or antlers.

Panasuk says crashes involving moose are rare in that part of North Dakota.
