CODY, Wyo. (AP) - A Florida couple escaped serious injury when a bear emerged from a ditch and struck the side of their motorcycle in the Beartooth Mountains in northern Wyoming.

The Cody Enterprise reports ( ) the encounter happened at about 6 p.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 212, two miles south of the Montana border and six miles from Cooke City, Montana.
