Posted

ADAMS TWP. — Two people were treated and released by emergency medical personnel following a vehicle/bear collision on northbound I-75 at Sterling Road Aug. 31.

According to the police report, a 54-year-old Roseville male and his 28-year-old male passenger were traveling northbound on I-75 in a 2011 Ford Fiesta when the bear entered the roadway and collided with the vehicle.

Michigan State Police Trooper Jeff Devine said all the airbags were deployed in the vehicle and both the driver and passenger suffered minor injuries before being treated and released at their request. Both occupants were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the collision.

Devine was responding to another call when the request came in to handle the collision. He said upon his arrival, the vehicle and bear were loaded and ready to haul away. Devine issued a permit to the driver to keep the bear.

The disabled vehicle was towed from the scene.
