A driver collided with a moose Saturday afternoon, near the same location where a 19-year-old Spokane woman was killed after hitting a moose on May 13.
Saturday’s collision happened in the westbound lanes of Interstate 90, just near the state line, and involved one vehicle.
Washington State Patrol dispatch said the driver had left the scene by the time troopers arrived. It’s not illegal to leave the scene of a collision with an animal.
The moose had to be put down by Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife because of the injuries it suffered, according to the dispatcher.
