Turkey flies through truck’s windshield

Updated Apr 5, 2020

A trucker and a turkey had an exceptionally close encounter Wednesday, April 1, and neither, it appears, is any the worse for wear.

The Eagan (Minnesota)Police Department posted to its Facebook page that a wild turkey flew into and through the windshield of a tractor-trailer on eastbound Interstate 35 Wednesday. While the truck’s windshield was destroyed, the driver and the turkey were shaken but not injured.

In fact, the police said, “After removing the bird, the turkey went back into a wooded area like nothing happened.”
