DES PERES, Mo. - As if rush hour traffic isn't bad enough on Interstate 270, imagine throwing a wild turkey into the mix!
That's exactly what happened Wednesday morning in Des Peres. A turkey wandered into the northbound lanes near Manchester Road around 7:30 a.m., causing quite a backup.
Diana Mullen sent us photos of the bird.
Des Peres police were able to shoo the turkey off the road about an hour later. It was not injured.
