Driver Swerves To Miss Moose And Hits Bear Instead

Ever have a feeling that things have just gone from bad to worse? Pretty sure that's what a Norwegian driver was thinking earlier today when he swerved to avoid hitting a moose on a rural road and hit a bear instead.

Apparently it was dark out so the driver didn't see that a bear was also nearby. The driver was not hurt but his car suffered some damage and wildlife officials are looking for the injured bear still.
According to Reuters, this isn't such a crazy coincidence as Norway has lots of wildlife compared to its only five million people. Which isn't much for a country the size of Germany.
