One of the northbound trucks lost control after striking the moose and entered a ditch on the eastern side of the road and rolled several times. Two passengers aboard the vehicle were ejected from the truck. Despite efforts from local paramedics both passengers died as a result of their injuries. Alcohol is not considered to be a factor in the collision.
