2 Turkeys Crash Into Windshields on I-91 and I-84

Two turkeys have crashed into windshields on different Connecticut highways on Friday.

The most recent incident happened on Interstate 91 north, in the area of exit 47W in Enfield.

The first incident today this morning on Interstate 84 East in Tolland, near exit 68.

Neither driver was hurt.

On Thursday, state police responded to a turkey strutting on Interstate 95 in Darien, which slowed down traffic on the southbound side of the highway. 

This is turkey breeding season, which typically starts in late March and early April, with toms gobbling and displaying for the hens. 

An adult male eastern wild turkey can grow to 48-inches and can weigh between 15 and 25 pounds, while a female turkey can reach 36 inches and 8 and 12 pounds, according to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

They can fly several miles each day.
