Unhappy Crazy accident with a bear near my area

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa...luskville.html

Two people were killed Monday when a car struck a bear on a rural Quebec highway and sent the animal crashing into a second vehicle.

A Pontiac Sunfire travelling east slammed into a black bear at about 10:30 p.m. on Highway 148, near the town of Luskville, said the local police from MRC des Collines.

The 200-kilogram bear was thrown into the air and struck a black SUV travelling in the opposite direction, police said. The bear smashed through the SUV's front windshield and out the back window.

The driver of the SUV, a 25-year-old Ottawa woman, was pronounced dead at the scene, along with a 40-year-old Gatineau man later identified as Steven Leon, who was sitting in the seat behind her. The woman's name has not yet been released.

The black bear died after it was struck by two vehicles near Luskville, Que., on Monday. CBC
Her 28-year-old boyfriend, sitting in the front of the SUV, suffered minor injuries and was taken to Hull Hospital. The two male occupants of the Pontiac Sunfire were not hurt.

On Tuesday, investigators ruled out alcohol as a factor in the crash, which happened about 40 kilometres northwest of Ottawa. They were still trying to determine other details.

Police believe the car, which was lower to the ground than the SUV and had a more aerodynamic design, must have thrust the bear a male, or boar up into the air and into the other lane.

"The SUV, being larger, would have driven right into the path of the bear as it was coming down," Omar Dabaghi-Pacheco of CBC News Ottawa reported from the scene.

I heard about that, that's crazy. We had that happen out this way last year (I think, maybe 2 yrs now) with a moose but I don't believe anyone was killed.
