"He was immediately in front of me, just standing there," Melinda said. "Then there was the crash, the explosion. That was all I remembered until I got to the hospital."
The front end of the little car knocked the animal's legs from under it, Steve said. The impact blew out the car's windows.
The husband and wife were both knocked unconscious.
"Thank God we were in the Mini," Steve said. "The officer said if we were in our SUV, instead of hitting the front of the roof, the bull moose would have gone through the windshield."
