A moose lost the battle against a car Sunday evening near the Enderby Drive-In Theatre.
A north bound Honda Accord driven by a 59-year-old Grindrod resident struck a moose crossing the highway.
The driver and passenger suffered only cuts and abrasions after the moose landed on the vehicle's windshield.
Both were taken to VJH by ambulance for treatment.
North Okanagan RCMP want to remind motorists to be aware of wildlife that frequents local highways in our area during this time of year.
“Buckle up, slow down, and drive safe,” says Cpl. Gerry Kovacs.
