When Michelle Oliver of Nova Scotia went into labor back in May, she and her husband Matthew got into their pickup truck and set off for the hospital.
On the way, they hit a bear.
Michelle said, “I opened my eyes and the airbags were in my face. There was smoke everywhere, and there was this huge body on the hood of the truck.”
The bear left the scene on its own. Neither passenger was hurt, and they finished the journey via ambulance. (The truck had to be towed.)
A couple of hours later their baby boy arrived. He was named Morgan Bear Oliver.
