Bear falls on police car causing crash & fire

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A patrol car was struck by a falling bear in Northern California last weekend.

Authorities say a Humboldt County sheriff's deputy was driving on State Route 96 on August 3, answering a report of a drug overdose in the community of Orleans, when the bear fell or jumped onto the car, apparently from a steep embankment.

The bear smashed the hood and windshield. The patrol car hit an embankment, rolled onto its side and burst into flames.

The deputy managed to escape without serious injury.

I think the bear was ok.

 Don’t worry, the bear also fled the scene.
