Motorcycle vs Buzzard

David Christopher Norris, 31, was tooling around Maryland on Sunday afternoon and it was to be his final ride.

Police report that Norris was speeding excessively when he passed a car on the shoulder and as he did, a buzzard flew into his path impacting into Norris and his bike.  This caused Norris to cross the center stripes of the road, hitting the curb, a utility pole and a fire hydrant – all while the giant bird was “attached” to Norris and his bike.

Norris, his bike and the bird all finally landed in a wooded area along the roadside.

The bird died instantly, Norris was pronouced dead later at the hospital.  Police called it a “freakish accident” and think Norris’ speed was a factor.
