Kevin Milner, 30, was about to go for a spin on May 16 when he made the unfortunate decision to pass a black bear wandering the paved Seymour Valley Trail. It didn’t end well.

“The moment I made that decision, he decided to run and ran across the street right in front of me, and I crashed into him right behind his shoulder blade,” he said North Shore NewsHe realized he didn’t want to stop in front of a startled bear. “I rolled over him. I sort of kissed the bear and then I must have flew through the air.”

The collision resulted in a broken shoulder blade, a contused heart, bruised ribs, a rash and numbness, he told the news agency.

“It feels like the entire left side of my upper body went to the dentist,” he said after being treated at nearby Lions Gate Hospital in north Vancouver.

As for the bear, it didn’t seem worn out. It ended up meandering back to the scene of the accident, Milner said while waiting for first responders.

“Man, these bears are built like a truck,” he said. “I thought I was going to die.

“He was kind of looking at me, really curious, kind of like, ‘What’s the matter with you?’ Then the bear just started eating grass. He practically just got on with his day.”
