A driver was killed early Friday in a collision with a moose near Wasilla, Alaska State Troopers say.

The driver was not immediately identified.

A 2004 Nissan sedan hit the moose near the intersection of Pittman Road and Greensward Drive in Meadow Lakes west of Wasilla, according to an online troopers dispatch posted Friday.

Troopers received a report of a single person inside a vehicle, not moving, just before 4 a.m. Troopers and Mat-Su emergency responders arrived to find the driver dead, troopers said.

Efforts were underway to identify the driver and to notify next of kin, troopers said. The body was transported to the State Medical Examiner Office in Anchorage for autopsy and positive identification.
