PARTRIDGE, Kan. (AP) -- Cattle, deer, even the occasional horse are all known to create road hazards in Kansas. But it was a flying turkey that did in one driver's windshield.

The Reno County sheriff's office says a 65-year-old Larned man suffered minor injuries around 9 a.m. Monday when the big bird crashed through the windshield of his SUV. The turkey landed in the man's lap, then moved over to the lap of his passenger.

KWCH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/11yEvFz ) the turkey did not survive the crash. The male motorist was treated at the scene for minor cuts and glass in his eyes.

The accident happened on U.S. 50 in Partridge, about 12 miles southwest of Hutchinson.
