DELTA JUNCTION, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a Volkswagen that hit a moose near Delta Junction went airborne, rolled and then landed on its wheels.

KTUU-TV reports (https://is.gd/b1vAZM) that the driver, 51-year-old Jon Carpenter of Delta Junction, was northbound Monday night on the Richardson Highway when his vehicle hit the animal. He was taken to a Fairbanks hospital for treatment of injuries that troopers say did not appear life-threatening.

In a report, troopers wrote that their investigation was based in part on damage to nearby treetops. They concluded the car rolled at least once before coming to rest.

Troopers say the crash killed the moose, which was salvaged for meat.
