A 63-year-old Chugiak resident died following a collision with a moose on the Glenn Highway Sept. 13, according to the Anchorage Police Department.

The crash, first reported at 1:18 a.m., occured when Michael Rock was driving north near milepost 19, police said. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered his green 1994 Lincoln sedan “heavily damaged” and covered with tufts of moose hair in a marsh at the bottom of an embankment, according to APD.

A cow moose lay dead on a nearby bike path, police said. Rock — who was the only passenger — was unresponsive, and he was later decleared dead at a local hospital.

The moose was donated to charity.
