Kansas Couple Killed in Motorcycle Crash Caused by Vulture

A vulture caused a motorcycle wreck in Kansas that killed an Army veteran and his wife, neither of whom was wearing a helmet, according to authorities.

The bird flew out of a ditch as Brandon Husband and his wife, Jennifer, were riding their motorcycle on Saturday afternoon on a rural road in southern Kansas, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol. The vulture struck the 42-year-old man driving the motorcycle in the head, causing the bike to veer off the road into a barbed-wire fence and overturn. His 43-year-old wife was taken to a Wichita hospital, where she died later that evening, the Wichita Eagle reported.
