Teague says the car next to him hit the middle turkey and sent the bird flying into his windshield. Although the windshield was badly damaged, Teague and the turkey survived. Police say Teague had a few cuts and scratches to his face. His wife, who was in the passenger seat, and a male relative, who was in the back seat, were not hurt.

Emergency crews and firefighters arrived on scene and assisted the turkey, which was still alive, away from the highway and back to safety.
