Turkey survives crash through semi truck’s windshield
“When you crash and burn, you just have to pick yourself back up and keep going.
That seems to be the mantra for one turkey, who was making its merry way across Minnesota on Wednesday afternoon.
During its flight, the turkey crashed into the windshield of a semi truck that breezing down Interstate 35E near the city of Eagan, according to the Eagan Police Department.
An Eagan police officer was driving down the highway when he saw a trucker waving him down, officer Aaron Machtemes wrote in an email to CNN. That’s when the officer stopped and saw the bird lodged in the broken windshield. The driver and the turkey are both, thankfully, doing fine, police said in a tweet.”

One look at that picture and it’s amazing that neither the driver nor the bird was harmed at all. Considering that the average turkey can weigh between 15 and 30 lbs., things could’ve turned out much worse. After the bird was successfully dislodged from the windshield, the reporting officer stated that it went back into the woods like nothing happened. That’s one tough bird!
