A vulture caused an accident that executed two individuals as they rode a bike in southern Kansas, authorities state.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the winged creature came out of a ditch Saturday evening and struck 42-year-old Brandon Husband, of Fowler, in the head on a rural street 13 miles northwest of the Barber County town of Medicine Lodge. The bike at that point went off the street, struck a spiked metal perimeter and overturned.
The patrol says Husband kicked the bucket at the scene, and his traveler, a 43-year-old Jennifer Husband, was declared dead at a hospital. Both of them were not wearing a protective helmet.
Medicine Lodge is around 75 miles southwest of Wichita.
