Some hapless driver last week probably endured what surely had to be the scare of a lifetime. The driver didn’t hang around for a photo-op or interview, but he or she probably would have had a story to tell if they had hung around.
The evidence of the incident was discovered on Salt Point Turnpike in Pleasant Valley. The carcass of a 250-pound black bear was discovered around dawn on Thursday. It made the ultimate sacrifice in a battle with a motor vehicle. It is not clear whether it was a truck or a car, according to everyone I’ve spoken to so far.
