Two people injured while trying to avoid hitting kangaroo in Montana

A Montana Highway Patrol Trooper says two people were injured after the driver swerved their vehicle to avoid hitting a kangaroo on the road.

Trooper Matt Finley told KWYB TV that he thought it was joke when he was responding to the call on Wednesday morning out on Highway 2 until he saw the kangaroo.

He said there is a kangaroo farm located west of Dodson.

The people in the vehicle suffered minor injuries after their vehicle rolled.

Finley said he did not attempt to capture the marsupial.

Dodson is located in Phillips County in northern Montana.
