A New Jersey family said they’ll be “eating ham from now on” at Thanksgiving, after a 30-pound wild turkey impaled itself through the windshield of their SUV in northwest Indiana on Tuesday.
The Taraboczhia family from Emerson, New Jersey, was heading to O’Hare International Airport after visiting the University of Notre Dame.
They were driving on U.S. 20 in LaPorte County when a wild turkey went crashing through the windshield of their GMC.
“We’ve had incidents of turkeys striking vehicles in the past but I don’t think anything nearly as this dramatic,” LaPorte County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Kellems said.
Three of the four people in the SUV suffered minor cuts.
