The North Dakota State Patrol said a van and a semi struck and killed a moose on Interstate 29 near the Thompson, N.D., exit Thursday evening.

Scott Gulsvig, 32, Moorhead, suffered minor cuts from glass when his GMC Safari hit the moose in the southbound lanes about 7 p.m., Trooper Ryan Panasuk said.

A Freightliner semi driven by Conley Cumming, 58, Yorkton, Sask., hit the same moose later as it lay in the road, Panasuk said.

Gulsvig was treated at Altru Hospital; Cumming was not injured. The trooper said the accidents left the moose in "pretty rough shape."

"It looked like it was probably a young one. There were no horns or antlers there," he said, adding that crashes involving moose are rare but not unheard of in the area.

The van sustained a shattered windshield and damage to the driver's side door and front quarter panel; the semi received front-end damage, Panasuk said.
