A Minnesota man was sent to the hospital with minor injuries after he drove his truck into a flock of geese.
The Sioux City Journal reports Brian Nielsen hit the geese as they were flying across an Iowa highway. He was taken to a Worthington hospital in a private vehicle. Nielsen estimates his 2008 Ford F-250 sustained about $3,000 damage.
