ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A boy died Wednesday from injuries sustained when the car his mother was driving struck a moose on the Glenn Highway north of Anchorage.
The accident occurred a little after 8:30 p.m. Tuesday as Susan Stone, 54, of Eagle River was driving the car in the middle lane of the highway and a moose walked across the road.
The moose went into the driver's compartment and almost totally took off the roof of the car. The car came to rest on the right shoulder of the highway.
Susan Stone and her 13-year-old son, Teller Stone, were taken to Alaska Regional Hospital. The boy was transferred to Providence Alaska Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead early Wednesday morning.
