Motorcyclist killed after collision with turkey buzzard Associated Press Posted on Tue, Jun. 22, 2004 HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A low-flying turkey buzzard apparently caused an accident that killed motorcyclist last week, authorities said. Joseph M. Maglori, 35, of Piscataway, was driving in Hunterdon County around 7:15 p.m. Friday when the 10- to 15-pound buzzard slammed into his helmet, witnesses said. The motorcycle then crossed over the yellow line as Maglori tried to fight off the bird. The motorcycle then struck a car that had stopped after the driver saw Maglori struggling with the buzzard, police said. Maglori was thrown into the car's front windshield and then went over the top of the car. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later. Joyce Stangle of Sciota, Pa., and her husband, Herbert, a passenger in the car, were not injured in the crash. The buzzard's body was found about 175 feet from the crash scene, authorities said. The accident remains under investigation by Holland Township police.
