Here's what's happening right now:

A 66-year-old Fredericton man is dead after the vehicle he was driving collided with a moose. The accident happened late Sunday night on Route 7 near Welsford, about 60 kilometres southeast of Fredericton. Two passengers, who were also in the car, were transported to hospital. One received minor injuries, while the other has serious injuries. All of the passengers were wearing their seatbelts and alcohol was not involved. RCMP tell us that the accident happened along a section of that highway that does not have moose fencing. The man’s name has not been released.

A vehicle travelling on the highway towards Fredericton was involved in a collision due to heavy rain Sunday afternoon. Constable Colin Gallant of District 2 RCMP said a car carrying three people in their twenties hydroplaned due to the rain, and struck a bridge support beam holding up the crossover highway at the Deerwood overpass. The two males and one female inside the vehicle were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, after a passerby saw the accident and phoned 9-1-1. The passengers are all stable and one has been released from hospital.

Sussex RCMP are looking into an incident on the weekend where two men in their 20's got into a shouting match with another man. It quickly became physical when the 24-year-old man was stabbed twice. He was taken to hospital where he was treated and released. Police have recovered a knife. The suspect is described as in his late teens or early 20's, about 5 foot 10 inches tall and skinny with short dirty blond hair.

A 38-year-old Dieppe man is dead following a motorcycle accident on Saturday. District 6 RCMP tell us that Danis St-Laurent was travelling on Route 108 in McGraw Brook, about 50 kilometres southwest of Miramichi, when his motorcycle left the road. RCMP continue their investigation.

It seems even creatures of the wild need their morning caffeine fix. A deer smashed through the front window of a Tim Hortons in the downtown area of Glace Bay on Saturday, startling employees working in the restaurant's backroom. Believing the animal was a thief, the workers called police. Police say when they arrived they found the deer trapped in the rear door entranceway. Staff Sergeant Kevin Dowe of Cape Breton Regional Police said it's not unusual to have deer in the town due to the extreme heat in the woods. He said police opened the door for the deer, allowing it to escape uninjured.

A chocolate Labrador had to take matters into his own paws near Allantown, PA. When left in a hot car, 11-year-old Max began honking the horn for help. After taking Max for a drive while she did errands, Donna Gardner said she returned home and went in the house, forgetting man's best friend was in the car with her. About an hour later, she heard a car horn and she went outside. She didn't see anyone, so she went back inside. Then the horn blew again and Gardner went outside to see her beloved pet at her car's steering wheel. The dog was not injured.
