Two Moose Hit By Cars In Park City In The Past Month

  In the past month, there have been two moose hit by cars in Park City. 

Despite the recent incidents, it’s not common for cars to hit moose, according to Phil Kirk with the Park City Police Department. But he said these sorts of accidents do happen from time to time. 

“We do see those types of accidents here on 224 or 248,” Kirk said. “It's more likely that they hit deer.” 

He said because moose are so large, they can cause damage and can injure the motorist. 

In the most recent accident — which happened Monday night — the driver hit a moose, which flipped up onto the car damaging the windshield and roof.

The driver — a 52-year-old woman from Provo — was injured in the accident. She was taken to the Park City Hospital with a laceration on her forehead and had neck and back pain. 

The moose died after it was hit by at least two other cars.
