In what was surely a terrifying incident for a very unlucky driver (we presume), a bear was reportedly hit and killed early this morning on west Interstate 4 near John Young Parkway, WFTV reported Wednesday.

Orlando police said they spotted the black bear around 5 a.m., though they remain unsure about how exactly it met its untimely demise. 

No damage from a car was available at the scene.
