The Wadena Fire Department was forced to deal with another vehicle/moose collision early Thursday morning.

The WFD says a semi struck the animal on Highway 5 near Clair around 1:45 Thursday morning.

Fortunately the driver wasn't hurt but the impact was solid as seen on the photo of the rig above. The swemi-unit was actually disabled due to the collision. The department did have to remove the animal from the highway before the scene was secure for motorists.

The department warns to slow down and keep an eye out for moose on the loose.
