A driver in southern Maine escaped unhurt Saturday night when their vehicle struck a black bear that was crossing the road.

Police said Tuesday that the bear weighed an estimated 250 pounds or more.

The animal was crossing Sanford Road in Wells.

The bear was killed instantly, but the driver was not hurt.

Inland Fisheries and Wildlife bear biologist Jen Vashon said drivers should keep in mind that bears are on the move this time of year because they are waking up from hibernation and looking for food.

She said that’s something homeowners should think about as well. To keep bears from wondering onto your property Vashon recommends taking down bird feeders at night and storing garbage in a shed or garage.
