    Turkeys cause Interstate crash

    WESTMINSTER — A flock of wild turkeys crossing caused a two-car crash on Interstate 91 on Saturday.

    Diane McIntyre, 48, of Windham, Conn. was traveling north when a large flock wild turkeys went across the highway. McIntyre slowed down to avoid the birds but the driver behind her got distracted, police said.

    Elizabeth Libbey, 65, of Charlemont, Mass., struck the rear end of McIntyre’s vehicle when she noticed a turkey in front of her car flying at eye level. As Libbey tried to avoid it, she struck McIntyre, police said.

    Police said Libbey’s car ran off the road while McIntyre’s car spun into the breakdown lane. The Westminster Fire Department extricate McIntyre from her car because the door was jammed shut.

    McIntyre and Libbey’s passenger William MacLeisch, 84 of Charlemont, were transported to the Springfield Hospital by Golden Cross Ambulance. Both sustained minor injuries.
