Trooper Injured by Moose While Driving to Moose Crash 

A State Police trooper responding to a car-moose crash ended up colliding with a moose himself late Tuesday night.

Trooper Dennis Quint was on Route one in Cyr Plantation, heading north on a call about a car crash involving a moose in the area.

He told authorities a moose crossed the road in front of his cruiser and he was unable to avoid the animal.

Trooper Quint was taken to the hospital with cuts to his head. He has since been released.
