MONTREAL — Two people have died following a collision between a moose and a car on Saturday night north of Quebec City.

The car jumped the median and crashed into a rock wall after striking the animal around midnight in the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve.

The car's occupants, a man and a woman in their 50s, had to be removed from the vehicle using the jaws of life.

They were pronounced dead in hospital.
