NORRIS ARM, Newfoundland, May 13 (UPI) -- A Canadian woman says she has no memory of driving 25 miles down the highway after hitting a moose.

The windshield of Michelle Higgins' car was smashed and the roof was ripped open by the collision, which occurred while she was on her way to work in Gander Monday, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

"I can remember pulling into the driveway and my co-workers came out and asked me if I was OK and I said 'Why?' and they said 'Well Michelle you're bleeding and look at your car. I looked at my car and I was devastated," Michelle Higgins told the CBC Friday.

"The roof was like a sardine can. I thought, 'this is impossible.'

"I know my head did take a good impact and my forehead has a scuff mark that we are thinking may have been caused by the moose's hoof."

She said Sunday not only doesn't she remember the episode, she's surprised no one reported seeing her severely damaged car as she tooled along the Trans-Canada highway. She wonders if she was driving "like some sort of lunatic."

The Norris Arm, central Newfoundland, resident was badly bruised and fractured two neck bones.

The moose died.
