It seems that one Twin Cities turkey is using up all the luck for 2020.

The bird somehow managed to survive despite crashing through the windshield of a semi-truck that was traveling on I-35E.

The incident happened this past Wednesday, with Eagan Police Department sharing pictures of the aftermath.

"Driver of the truck and the turkey are ok," the police department said.

"After removing the bird, the turkey went back into a wooded area like nothing happened."
