bear1BOONES MILL - The Boones Mill Volunteer Fire/EMS squad says all three people riding in a car that overturned after being hit by a black bear walked away from the crash Sunday night, according to their Facebook page.

The black bear ran onto 220 into the side of the vehicle, the post says. The vehicle overturned.

All three people in the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts.

The bear died of its injuries.

The latest incident with a black bear adds to several bear sightings throughout the Roanoke Valley and Franklin County this year, including one at Franklin County High School earlier in the Summer.

"Always buckle up," the Facebook post said.
