AHTANUM--A Yakima man is in the hospital tonight after a run-in with a bear.
A deputy from the Yakima County Sheriff's Office told KNDO a man riding a motorcycle on the north fork of Ahtanum Road went around a bend and saw a bear blocking his path.
He tried to avoid it and lost control.
Deputies say the man's being treated for neck and rib injuries.
They're not expected to be life-threatening.
The bear was gone when police arrived.
