The most Canadian fireworks display of all time took place early this morning along the Trans Canada Highway near Wawa, Ontario, after a truck transporting fireworks struck a moose and exploded.

Luckily, both the vehicle's driver and passenger managed to escape unharmed.

The accident shut down the highway for over five hours as firefighters cautiously attempted to put out the blaze while dodging fireworks shooting out of the truck in every direction.

Wawa-news notes that there were two additional moose-involved accidents last night in the same area, but they didn't result in a fireworks display.
