A local real estate agent will be heading off to close another deal tomorrow, but this time it will be at his insurance agent's office, where he'll be finishing the paperwork for a new windshield. Alan Kepple, of Smiths Grove, was heading down Pig Road, (KY 422) on Wednesday, when a turkey flew from the nearby woods into his path.
Since there was an oncoming dump truck in the other lane and a large ditch and woods line on his right, Kepple had no where to go. "I didn't have a lot of choice but to hit the bird," Kepple said. "It was loud and there was a lot of glass everywhere."
Luckily, Mr. Kepple wasn't injured, and no other vehicles were involved. When asked about the welfare of the turkey, Kepple replied, "I'm guessing the turkey didn't make it."
