    Vermont State Police

    Vermont State Police say two crashes over the weekend both involved the driver hitting a bear.

    The first crash happened Friday evening in Waterford, when a 16-year-old girl tried to break as a bear ran across the road. MyNBC5 reports the girl's vehicle suffered severe front end damage, but she was not injured.

    Police say the second crash happened early Saturday in Shaftsbury. A 32-year-old man was driving northbound when a bear suddenly ran out onto the road and collided with his vehicle.

    The driver suffered no injuries, but the vehicle suffered severe damage and was towed from the scene.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
