Motorcycle collides with bear

BearCrash

Mark Morong, 60, of Ojai, is treated by Indian Valley fire rescue volunteer Josh Miille Saturday afternoon, Sept. 15, after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a bear on Genesse Road, just south of North Valley Road. Morong was traveling southbound about 45 miles-per-hour when a bear ran out in front of him. Morong was ejected from his 2004 BMW motorcycle and sustained minor injuries to his right arm and shoulder. The dead bear is visible about 20 feet to the left of Morong and Miille.
