A 43-year-old man is dead after the vehicle he was driving struck a moose.

Humboldt RCMP were called just before 6:30 p.m. Thursday to an accident on Highway 5, three kilometres east of the Bruno turn-off.

Police say an eastbound mini-van struck a moose, killing the vehicle's river.  A female and three children riding in the vehicle were uninjured. 

The name of the victim is not being released.
