A wild turkey smashed through the windshield of a school bus Friday morning in Cumberland County, New Jersey, leaving three children with minor injuries.

The turkey did not survive.

The large bird was flying on County Route 553 at about 8 a.m. in Lawrence Township when it crashed into the crowded bus, spraying broken glass on the driver and the kids headed to Myron L. Powell School.

Three of the children were treated for minor injuries.

The rest were simply stunned by the fowl arrival.

The bus driver, Edwin Ramos, said he was only five minutes away from dropping the students off at school when the bird hit.

"He just went right throught that windshield glass, shattered the whole glass and hit me in my face," Ramos said. "Everything was in slow motion, I could only see through one eye."

Ramos also suffered minor injuries
