UK Firefighter Dressed as Bear Hit by Fire Engine

A UK firefighter dressed like a bear was hit by a fire truck during a parade in Torrington on Saturday night.

Justin Matthews, a retained firefighter,  was released after treatment, according to North Devon Journal.

The fire truck was going slowly into a circle. "As it turned.  the bear was walking on the inside of the roundabout and it appears the front wheel caught him. The bloke who had been hit starting screaming "back up, back up," a witness told reporters.

The parade was stopped while an ambulance crew treated the injured firefighter-bear.
