Two killed in freak collision with bear on Highway 148

OTTAWA — A 25-year-old Ottawa woman and a 40-year-old Gatineau man were killed instantly on Highway 148 Monday night after a black bear tossed by another collision crashed through the windshield of their SUV with such force that it burst straight through the back window, too.

Only the woman’s boyfriend, who was riding in the front passenger seat, survived.
