Moose vs Volvo XC90 aftermath

Volvo - Moose vs Volvo XC90 aftermath - Swedish Cars

So 3 days ago my dad hit a moose in his XC90 (and yes I was also in the car).
Was going about 70 km/h, then it jumped down from a small hill next to the road. My dad slammed the brakes and steered to the left so the moose luckily hit the side of the car so it didn’t come through the windshield.
The road was carved through a hill, so there was an about 2m high cliff face on either side of the road. Hope that was explained well enough.

Could have been worse. Moose survived but got a cut in its side.
