Recently, in Russia, a brown bear was struck by an SUV and then, once it managed to free itself from beneath the tire, gave a car full of people the scare of a lifetime.

According to The Mirror, for the first minute after the accident, the bear appeared to be dead as to lay trapped under the tire. Moments later, though, it began to stir, as if waking from sleep, then lifted the SUV off itself and writhed free.

Unrestrained and angry, the bear attacked the tire, then slowly made its way toward the occupants of the nearby car, and this is when the incident turned truly nightmarish.
