Fatal Moose Collision

Updated 7 years ago

A man from Waterville died after his motorcycle hit a moose.

It happened Friday on the Interstate in Pittsfield.

Troopers say 61-year old Ronald Eyrum was traveling orth when the moose walked into the road from the median…directly into the path of Eyrum’s motorcycle.

He tried to avoid the animal, but there was little he could do.

Eyrum was wearing a helmet and other protective clothing, but it couldn’t save him

Police say Eyrum died at the scene—the moose was also killed.

It is the latest in a series of bad accidents involving a moose—including one that killed a man and woman earlier this week in Howland.
