Crazy / Sad!
A 300-pound male black bear wandered onto a road and was struck by an eastbound Pontiac Sunfire.
The impact sent the animal hurtling through the air, where it smashed the windshield of a westbound Nissan Pathfinder sport utility vehicle and went out through the back window, regional police spokesman said.
The SUV's 35-year-old female driver and a 40-year-old man sitting behind her were killed; a 28-year-old front-seat passenger suffered minor injuries, Fournel said.
In the Pontiac, neither the driver, a 23-year-old man, nor his 19-year-old male passenger was hurt.
Authorities say everyone needs to be careful while driving during bear mating season.
