Turkey hits vehicle on Highway 113

By From page A4 | June 28, 2013

Typically, it’s the wayward pebble that hits car windshields on Yolo County roadways. But something much larger flew into a Woodland woman’s GMC Sierra Wednesday morning on Highway 113.

It was a turkey, which broke through 43-year-old Clarisa Lovato’s windshield as she traveled southbound near County Road 27 at about 8:30 a.m.,┬áCalifornia Highway Patrol Officer Cindy Leal said.

Lovato was not hurt in the incident, but the turkey was not so lucky, Leal said. Emergency personnel removed the dead bird, which had become partially lodged inside the Sierra.
