Two friends from Central Minnesota were taking a little drive down the highway, just on the way to a friend’s house last Friday, when a damn bear came out of nowhere. With no time to react, they hit the bear head on…
“It came out of nowhere, we didn’t even have time to like, stop. It was literally full on at 70 miles per hour. It literally felt like we hit a brick wall.”
I mean they hit the hell out of it, and the car looked so bad after the collision, that it looks like nobody could’ve survived the wreck.
Cynthia Thompson, the driver of the car, recalled the collision, thinking she was seriously injured:
“I remember being hit, I remember being whipped around the car. I was terrified. I didn’t think that I was going to be okay, like I literally thought that I was gonna die.”
The two were able to get themselves unbuckled, and crawled out of the back window of the car. As the two were at the hospital, a cop asked Thompson’s mom if she wanted to keep the bear. Needless to say, she didn’t want any part of that thing:
“I didn’t want to keep the bear personally, I didn’t want to see the bear, I wanted nothing to do with the bear, because it was my car that got totaled. I just bought that car two months ago too and I just made my second car payment to it.”
Keep the bear? Is that a thing?
I’m honestly not familiar with what typically happens you hit a bear with your car but I can’t imagine keeping it? The meat? Yeah I suppose, but it’s not like you’re going to mount it.
“Nice bear, where’d you get that one.”
“Hit it with my car.”
Plus, you got a new car to buy…
I guess at the end of the day, it’s great to know that everybody made it out safe and sound with only minor injuries (except for the bear, of course).
Remember folks, bears aren’t just dangerous creatures in the wild, they’re absolute UNITS if you hit them with a car.
