At approximately 8:30 am, police received a call reporting a vehicle traveling East on Route 6A in East Sandwich struck a turkey that was crossing the roadway. The bird crashed through the windshield of the 2007 Kia Sportage, and passed between the driver and the unoccupied passenger seat.

Solar glare at the time of the incident may have been a contributing factor. The turkey did not survive and the vehicle had to be towed from the scene.
