Flying turkey crashes through family’s windshield

A New Jersey family traveling through northern Indiana got a shock when a 30-pound turkey crashed through their vehicle’s windshield.

LaPorte County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Michael Kellems says the flying bird collided Tuesday with the family’s rented SUV. The dead turkey was left lodged in the shattered windshield as driver John Tarabocchia of Emerson, New Jersey, pulled over along U.S. 20.

Kellems says he’s been an officer for 31 years and he’s “never seen something like that.”

He says Tarabocchia and his three passengers suffered only minor cuts.
