From the BC RCMP press release:

The RCMP's Fraser Valley Traffic Services responded to a motorcycle accident on Highway 7 on June 30, 2013. The accident was believed to be a single motorcycle crash.

After ensuring the motorcyclist was receiving medical attention, the investigator quickly discovered the presence of video camera mounted on the driver helmet. The helmet and the video were seized at scene.

To their surprise police observed the motorcycle going for 0 km/h to over 140km/h in less than 20 seconds. Unfortunately, at the same time a train going by scared a young black bear, that ran across the highway directly in front of the motorcycle.

The driver made every effort possible to avoid the collision but to no avail. The driver of the motorcycle sustained significant though non-life threatening injuries, while the bear simply walked away.
