A truck carrying fireworks hit a moose near Wawa, Ontario, early Friday morning, shutting down the Trans Canada Highway for five-and-a-half hours and creating an impressive fireworks display as the truck burned. At about 1 a.m. on Friday morning, a truck reportedly carrying goods for Purolator, including fireworks, struck a moose about 40 kilometres outside the town of Wawa. The fuel tanks on the truck ruptured causing a large blaze. The driver and a passenger in the truck were unharmed, the Wawa-news reported, though they escaped with just the clothes on their backs.

If you are anything like me and probably millions of others around the World, you have often lain awake at night pondering over that age old question "What would happen if a truck carrying fireworks collided with a moose on the Trans Canada Highway?"

I'm not sure why, but this story makes me think of Tom Petty's Runnin' Down a Dream.

Well, look at it this way. The poor moose got quite a send off and memorial. It makes a 21 gun salute seem rather small and simple by comparison, eh?

I shared this story with a few friends.
