MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) _ State police say moose has been struck and killed by a car in Manchester.

The accident occurred at about 4:30 a.m. on Interstate 384 between exits 4 and 5.

The driver of the car was not injured.

State environmental officials had been searching for a young moose that was photographed wandering in a residential area of the town on Thursday near Vernon Street.

They say they believe the same moose was spotted in Vernon earlier in the day.

They described the moose as a male, about a year old and weighing between 400 and 600 pounds.
