Motorcyclist Killed In Collision With Turkey Buzzard
Advertisements [?]

HOLLAND TWP. -- A motorcyclist was killed in a head-on collision Friday after tangling with a low-flying turkey buzzard, township police said.

Joseph M. Maglori, 35, of Piscataway, N.J., was driving a yellow Ducati 900 motorcycle south on Route 627 when the fatal crash occurred about 7:15 p.m., police said.

Witnesses told police the buzzard slammed into Maglori's helmet and the motorcyclist then tried to fight off the 10- to 15-pound bird.

The motorcycle veered into the northbound lane and collided head-on with a stopped vehicle just north of Phillips Road, police said.

Joyce Stangle of Sciota, Pa., had stopped her vehicle after seeing the motorcyclist struggling with the buzzard, police said.
