Colo bear toots horn, takes car on a short joyride

LARKSPUR — A Colorado teen says a bear got into his empty car, honked the horn and sent it rolling into a thicket with the bear inside.

Ben Story says he and his family were asleep in their Larkspur home, 30 miles south of Denver, during the joyride early today.

He says the bear got into the car through an unlocked door and knocked the shifter into neutral, which sent it rolling backward 125 feet.

Story thinks the door slammed shut when the car jolted to a stop, trapping the bear inside.

Neighbors had called 911, and deputies freed the bear by opening the door with a rope from a distance.

Nobody was hurt, but Story says he needs a new car — the bear shredded the interior.
