Brewer Man Killed in Collision Involving a Moose

State police say this year’s first fatal collision involving a moose happened this morning on  Interstate 95 in Howland.

Troopers say it was just after 1 am when 60 year old Sidney Oakes of Brewer struck a moose with his minivan. Oakes was pronounced dead at the scene.

State police urge drivers to use caution, especially during the summer months when moose are more active at night.
