OSWEGATCHIE, N.Y. (AP) — A wild turkey landed inside the cab of a manure-hauling tractor trailer, startling the driver and sending the truck rolling into a ditch off a northern New York road.
State police say 38-year-old Scott Fisher of Lisbon was traveling in St. Lawrence County near the Canadian border when the turkey flew in through an open window.
As Fisher tried to shoo the bird out of the cab, the truck ran off the road and hit several fence posts and a utility pole before rolling onto its side in a ditch.
Fisher wasn’t hurt in the accident Monday in Oswegatchie.
Police say the turkey escaped, leaving behind some of its feathers.
