A family’s car collided with a moose outside Bjorli in Oppland County Wednesday, and the impact of the crash flung the moose over the car and right into the camping trailer they were pulling.

Others arriving at the scene found the moose with its head hanging out the smashed window of the trailer, which was severely damaged. “It was absolutely indescribable,” witness Steinar Helvik told newspaper VG. He was on his way to a fishing holiday with his own family when they came upon the accident scene. Police arriving shortly afterwards shot the moose to relieve its suffering. There were six persons in the car pulling the trailer, four adults and two children. Five of them escaped with minor injuries, but a 12-year-old boy suffered more serious injuries.
