KINGSTON, N.Y., April 12 (UPI) -- Wild turkeys crossing a road on the edge of an upstate New York city sent a driver rolling down an embankment after she swerved to avoid them, police said.

The driver suffered minor injuries.

The gang of turkeys was crossing the road on the edge of Kingston near the Ulster County Jail when Ann Bredahl, 61, of Bloomington, about 5 miles south, swerved to avoid them and hit the beginning of a guardrail, the county sheriff's office said.

The collision caused her 2006 Honda CR-V to overturn and roll down an embankment, the office said.

The compact sport utility vehicle rolled over completely, coming to rest back on its four wheels.

Bredahl was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.

The sheriff's office did not say why the turkeys crossed the road.
