Wildlife News
 
 
 
 

Interstate 80, mile marker 180, was the scene of a head-on collision between a semi truck and a male golden eagle Tuesday morning (Aug 4, 2009). The driver of the semi was surprised, to say the least, when his driver’s side windshield caved in on his lap and the large eagle fell to the floor of his cab.

All the commotion inside the cab caused the driver to swerve into an adjacent lane forcing another vehicle into the median. Thankfully no injuries occurred to any of the people involved. In spite of hitting the truck moving at a speed of 70 MPH the eagle was found by Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) standing in the back bunk area of the truck.
