Mass. driver crashes car after swerving to avoid bear

HUBBARDSTON, MASS. (WHDH) - A Massachusetts driver crashed their car after swerving to avoid a bear Monday, officials said.

The Hubbardston Fire Department tweeted a photo of a heavily damaged sedan with a caption that read, “It’s that time of year when animals are on the move. Part of the beauty of living in a rural community is the abundance of wildlife, but drivers need to be alert to them crossing the roadway.”

The driver was not hurt and the bear escaped without injury.
