A patrol car had its lights and sirens on when responding to a call in California. Suddenly, a bear fell from a cliff right onto the hood. The driver, the sheriff’s deputy, got scared and lost control of the vehicle. The car crashed into the embankment, flipped over, and rolled onto its side. The accident caused a fire that destroyed the vehicle and vegetation covering the embankment.
Fire brigades responded in time and extinguished the fire. According to the fire department head, the fire covered a pretty large area. Experts were fighting the fire until dawn. The situation was complicated by the fact there were many burning dry snags at the scene, they were smoldering and could have caught fire again.
According to rescuers, the deputy managed to escape without serious injury, but there is no information about the culprit of the accident, the bear.
