Speeding biker crashes into black bear on British Columbia highway

Posted Aug 22nd 2013 7:57PM


After watching a motorcycle rider battle it out with an aggressive ram on a mountain pass and the recent story of a biker being chased by angry Grey wolf, it seems the animal kingdom has developed a strong taste towards dueling with motorcycle riders everywhere.

This video captures a sudden crash between a speeding biker and a young black bear who dangerously cross paths along an empty stretch of highway in British Columbia. We'd strongly suggest jumping back on the bike and getting the heck outta there, as you don't want to face the wrath of an upset mama or papa bear after running over their baby cub

According to police, the man (who has not been identified), suffered a concussion and several broken bones as his motorcycle went skidding down the road. The video footage of the accident captured on the rider's helmet cam has been posted online by the RCMP in an effort to warn distracted drivers.

"You can see that he is focusing on the speedometer when the bear is already into the roadway so he's distracted by filming. When he finally looks up to see the bear at 140 km/h, there's not a lot of time to (react)... He's going from zero to 140 km/h in less than 20 seconds," describes RCMP Cpl. Robert McDonald.

Too bad the human didn't die - he is eligible for a Darwin award.

Did the bear die? That is the only tragedy in this story. Why didn't the article state what happened to the bear?

What charges will the human face?
