 Monday, December 8, 2014


Three people died and eight were injured in a crash that happened after a motorist in a Cadillac Escalade hit a bear and stopped along a two-lane road in the Florida Everglades. Seminole police spokesman Gary Bitner told The Associated Press that people traveling in a second vehicle Sunday evening had stopped to help when a third vehicle plowed into them. The bear also died. "Three people from a second vehicle got out and tried to help and all were struck and killed by a third vehicle," Bitner said by telephone, adding events apparently unfolded quickly. It was shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday when the first vehicle hit the bear.
