Of the scores of accidents across the Gem State this Memorial Day Weekend, perhaps the most unusual involves a 14-year-old driver and a moose.
This morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that a 14-year-old from Great Falls, Mont., was behind the wheel of a 1993 Cadillac late Saturday on Interstate 90 in Idaho's panhandle. For the record, Montana law allows a 14-year-old driver to have a permit if they are in a state-approved traffic education program.
According to Idaho State Police, the vehicle collided with a moose on I-90 near Cataldo, Idaho. The head of the animal even entered the passenger side of the car. Three adults and a 5-year-old passenger were all admitted to a local hospital for injuries while the teenager escaped serious injury.
