A Choteau man driving south on U.S. Highway 89 about 2.5 miles south of Choteau struck and killed a young adult male grizzly on May 22 at about 9:48 p.m., Teton County Sheriff Keith VanSetten said on Wednesday.

He said Delbert Bradley was the driver of the mid-sized pickup truck that struck the bear as it was crossing the highway. VanSetten said a Teton County deputy sheriff, the Montanan Highway Patrol and a Fish, Wildlife and Parks game warden from Great Falls responded to the accident.

VanSetten said Bradley was not injured but his pickup sustained extensive damage.
