The bear was reported dead about 3:30 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The animal was struck by a truck and then run over by a car whose driver called authorities to report colliding with an animal.

Andrew Hughan of the California Department of Fish and Wildlife told CBS2 the bear appeared to be about 2 years old.

Hughan warned motorists to use caution on roads near wildlife areas as many bears are emerging from winter hibernation.

The animal was struck on the same freeway as a mountain lion and her kittens in December and January.
