Family greeted by bear while driving around mountains in Tennessee

A family in Tennessee were greeted by a bear while driving around the Smoky Mountains.

The clip, filmed on June 13, shows the family driving around the corner before stopping because a bear was in front of them.

The filmer, Janet, told Newsflare: "We decided to go driving on a dirt road that would take us up and over the mountain we were currently on.

"Around a bend we were greeted by a bear. To avoid annoying the bear, we stopped and let him pass us.

"My husband was driving while I was recording. My son and his girlfriend were in the backseat of my brand new Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro. We did not want the bear to jump on or hurt the car in any way."
