OTTAWA (Reuters) – Two Canadians died instantly in a freak accident when a car hit a 440-pound (200-kg) black bear and sent the animal flying straight through the windshield of an oncoming vehicle, local media said Wednesday.

The bear's body hit the 25-year-old driver and a 40-year-old man sitting behind her and then shot out of the back window. The bear also died.

The accident happened Monday night in a rural area about 25 miles north of the federal capital Ottawa.

"We don't see (this) often, even if we live in the country. Lots of deer, but collisions with a bear and two people died? That's really rare," local police spokesman Martin Fournel told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

Collisions between vehicles and animals are common in Canada, which has a healthy population of large wild animals such as moose and deer.

Mkaes me think of Yogi and BooBoo
or some reason..
That's a freaky tragic story.

Me and My h hit a deer once.it came crashing into our windshield and up and over the car...luckily it didn't come through.
It was my side, I'd have been done.
Messed up the front end of the car.
It was running with other deer from hunters,across the road, panicked.
I was young, still in mytwenties..I soobed, beg my H to go and see if it was dead and if it wasn't to kill it.
It was dead though, it's neck snapped instantly..which I actually saw happen right in front of my face as it impacted the windshield, right in front of me.
I saw it's head whip up and back. (poor thing)
ealled the state troopers(to document for insurance stuff), as he was their taking the story, a guy drove up and asked if he could have it, as it was a "clean kill"..good meat for eating..the trooper let him take it

I nearly hit a big elk in a lonly stretch of Hwy 70 in Utah, where there is no services for 150 miles, and 3AM. I was going about 80MPH,sailing right alone, in the truck coming home from the Pike Peak Race, it was 3AMand not a car in sight. Totally dark and only the full moon out. I should have seen it but at that time of night, I was probably ust driving on reflexes and when I saw it, I had only 2 seconds left, before I passed it. It was on the paved sholder with its rump twards my lane staring into my headlights. He was big and all I could do was gasp, and said Oh S**t, and I wizzed right past him. I'll bet you couldn't get a feeler gage between his ass and the right door handle, and he probably took off like rocket.

My heart seriously must have stopped for a second, and I was passed him so fast I could not react, Thank God I didn;t hit him. I was driving a decel Ford crewcab, big truck, loaded with the racebikes and tools, but this Elk would have killed anyone in the front seat if we hit. My buddy Mike was sound asleep laying down in the back seat. At 80 MPH, I couldn't imagine what it would have done to the truck, considering the size of this thing. It was not a small deer, this guy was really big. The only thing My brain could conclude in that fast instant, was that his head was facing the Praire, so he could only take off away from my lane, however his rear end and tail were at the solid white line, and he standing on the sholder. Certainly only inches from contact. My mind was just mesmerized by the road, quiet middle of the night, nobody in site, I should have seen it for a quarter of a mile, but at those speeds your driving as fast as the lights illuminate, and it was suddenly there, head turned staring at the lights totally still. Poor thing, I must have scared him half way back to Colorado when I passed him. Poor thing would have totally blind from the lights, taking off running and not being able to see.

Once long ago..first I should say..you will not beleive this..I am ..for the most part..very shy

I was ilving in Fishkill, NY(not kidding)

Me and my H got into one of our first smack down arguments (married about three years, then)'
Looking back, I realize, he was probably fing someone.
He aways turns into a total cuunt when he's off secretly fing someone regularly(I realize now...use to think he was just moody..which he is, apparently.. super fickle moody..like most men)

so anyway..he was riding my azz, and we fought.. I had to go to work..he loves fing with me as I have to go off and do..something..anything
(jealous of everything and everyone, him..yet..a nice guy..weirdly)

So anyway..awful terrible fight..the kind you don't talk for days

so..I am in my car, on the way to work, after massive fight..before cell phones...I am trying to pull it together when suddenly I see..a deer..laying off tothe side inturning lane, at a busy spotlight alive..it had been hit by a car apparenlty, at a busy intersection..it layed there confused, scared, aware....no one stopping to help(not even me)
It's back legs broke..just laying there sad and confused..I sobbed..
me..totally shy but knowing what a type A (as in kinda an a hole)he goes for it,THAT, my H is..

I insally get to work, and even though I hated him at that monet...swallowed my pride and called and begged him to call "animal control" (notice I could have called myself, but asked him to)

I was a mess, already sad and thne seing that..and all th epeople, apparenlty notcaring. driving around it, even
sick
