One person is dead after two vehicles collided with a moose in Thorhild County on the long weekend.

Redwater RCMP responded to a report of the collision around 11:30 p.m. on Monday. Police were told a car travelling south on Highway 63 near Township Road 622 hit the moose. A truck heading north also hit the animal.

The 41-year-old woman driving the car died at the scene while a child in the vehicle was sent to hospital with minor injuries. Four people in the truck also had minor injuries.

The collision comes after a string of recent animal collisions that prompted the Alberta Motor Association (AMA) to warn drivers that it is not yet peak animal crossing times.

Between July 19 and 28, four Albertans were killed in collisions involving a moose. The first occurred near Ponoka on July 19 followed by two more deaths near Conklin a few days later and another near Killam.

AMA spokesman Ryan Lemont previously told Postmedia the highest risk for collisions with animals is between October and January.

The Alberta government doesn’t track collisions with animals by individual species, however, over the course of nearly three decades the average number of fatal collisions with animals is five per year. The province’s data doesn’t distinguish between urban animals like dogs or wildlife like moose. The most recent data is from 2018.

The worst year for fatal collisions involving animals in Alberta was 2017, which saw 10.

Thorhild County is about 110 kilometres north of Edmonton.
