A bear at the wheel

Forty metres. That's the distance covered by a Toyota Corolla with a bear at the wheel. It all started near Denver, Colo. when Ben Story, age 17, left a sandwich on the seat of the family car. Attracted by the scent of peanut butter, the bear clambered into the unlocked car in search of the tasty snack.Somehow, it managed to put the car in neutral, causing it to roll forward, and crash into a tree. The driver's door closed upon impact, trapping the bear inside. As you might imagine, there wasn't a whole lot left of the poor Corolla's interior after the bear escaped.
