Новости нашей деревеньки - авария с жертвами: 2 машины и один медведь


OTTAWA - Two people are dead after a bizarre two-vehicle collision with a bear north of Gatineau in western Quebec.

Police say at about 10 p.m. Monday night two young men were heading east along Hwy. 148 near Luskville, Que., when their Pontiac Sunfire struck a bear.

Though the men were uninjured, the impact sent the animal airborne into the opposite lane where an oncoming Nissan Pathfinder slammed into it.

The bear crashed through the windshield of the vehicle, killing the 25-year-old Ottawa woman in the driver's seat and the 40-year-old Gatineau man seated behind her.

"The bear went through the windshield on the driver's side and went back out by the back window. So can you imagine?" said Const. Martin Fournel.

"I have to say, it's a first."

The front seat passenger in the Sunfire, a 28-year-old Gatineau man, suffered serious but non-life threatening upper-body injuries.

He was taken to hospital where he remains in stable condition.

The deaths bring the number of road fatalities in the region to nine this year.

Police identified the male victim as Steven Leon from Gatineau.

The woman's name is being withheld at the family's wishes.

Hwy. 148 was closed overnight as police investigated the crash but was reopened at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning.

короткий пересказ с английского:

В понедельник в 10 вечера машина, идущая по шоссе, ударила передним бампером находящегося на шоссе медведя. От удара медведь взлетел в воздух, перелетел на встречную полосу, врезался в лобовое стекло идущей навстречу машины, пролетел внутри салона через машину, убив водителя и пассажира за водителем на заднем сидении и вылетел в заднее окно.

Изумлённый полицейский говорит, что никогда такого не видел/не слышал.

ЗЫ: история грустная. На вопросы "ходят ли у вас медведи по улицам?" отвечаем - да, ходят; будьте осторожны за рулём.
