Turkeys Terrorize Truckers: Birds Shatter Multiple Windshields

Just like a scene out of a Hitchcock film, the birds are tormenting highways!

Koam News Now reported that a semi truck crash on I 44 was caused by a turkey flying through the windshield. The incident happened around 1 p.m. on March 13 in Jasper County, Missouri. The trucker suffered some injuries after crashing his rig into the median.

See Missouri State Highway Patrol‘s post below:

And that wasn’t the only turkey attack this month. Multiple truckers have also posted online about dangerous avian encounters on the road. Reddit user u/PhilbyBoy posted photos of his brother’s smashed windshield and the turkey still alive in the truck.
