A turkey flew out of a highway ditch in northern Minnesota and burst through a pickup truck windshield Sunday afternoon, according to the State Patrol.

Driver Scott E. Taylor, 51, of Menahga, Minn., was injured and required hospital treatment for noncritical injuries, the patrol said.

A passenger, Thomas Walls, 38, of Nevis, Minn., came away with scratches and a headache, Taylor said on his Facebook page.

The pickup was heading south on Hwy. 71 about 15 miles south of Park Rapids when the turkey crashed through the passenger side of the windshield.

Taylor said on Facebook that a law enforcement officer shot and killed the turkey.
