A driver hit a bear while heading down State Road 82 late Saturday night.

It happened just east of the intersection with Corkscrew Road.

S.R. 82 was down to only one lane as Immokalee Fire crews assisted those involved in the crash.

The driver suffered minor injuries, said Immokalee Fire.

The status of the bear is unclear.

All lanes have since been cleared.
