Highway collisions have grown more common with black bear, which live in virtually every part of Virginia.
The collision took place in the northbound lanes of Route 29 (Lee Highway) at Telephone Road.
A 46-year-old Spotsylvania County man suffered serious injuries Monday when his motorcycle hit a black bear on Route 29 at New Baltimore.

The motorcyclist “slowed and swerved to miss the bear . . . as it was running across the highway,” Fauquier sheriff’s Sgt. James Hartman said of the report.

The 2013 Harley Davidson struck the bruin at noon in the northbound lanes of Route 29 at Telephone Road.

“Witnesses observed the bear run away from the crash scene,” Sgt. Hartman said.

An ambulance took the man to a regional trauma center.
 
“There were several reported black bear sightings in Fauquier County over the weekend,” Sgt. Hartman added.

It was very sad and emotional news which I am reading today. That motorcyclist should be held guilty for what he has committed. Everyone is supposed to drive carefully as they read reviews about edubirdie.com source carefully to track the best writer for assignment help online.
