CAMPTON — Two people were injured in a collision with a moose late Saturday on Interstate 93, fire officials said Sunday.

The driver and a passenger were northbound in a two-door hatchback, which was severely damaged when it struck the moose around 11 p.m. Saturday, Campton-Thornton Fire and Rescue said in a news release.

The car slid off the road and into some trees, where bystanders helped lift the damaged roof enough to remove the passenger, according to the news release. The driver was able to get out of the car without help and escaped with only minor injuries, the news release said.

The passenger was seriously hurt but the injuries were considered to be non-life threatening, according to the news release.
