A mountain biker accidentally slammed into a bear while biking down a wooded trail and caught the incident on video.
According to Mashable.com, trail rider Davis Souza was biking down Mills Peak trail near Lake Tahoe in California when a bear wandered into his path.
Souza’s helmet cam captured the collision. In the video, his bike slams right into the bear’s side and Souza goes sprawling.
The fallen biker picks himself up and swears, then explains to other riders, “That was a bear.”
“(T)his bear came out of nowhere and was gone before I could ask if it was alright or anything,” Souza wrote on Instagram.
The bear fled the scene and was unavailable for comment.
