    Driver hurt by tossed turkey


    Someone threw a frozen turkey through the windshield of a moving car in Lake Ronkonkoma, knocking the driver unconscious and leaving her in critical condition, Suffolk police said Wednesday.

    Police said the 20-pound turkey was thrown from the rear seat of an eastbound car on Portion Road about 12:40 a.m. Saturday as the woman's westbound car approached.

    Police said the turkey was purchased a short time earlier at Waldbaum's on Portion Road and Cenacle Road in Lake Ronkonkoma. Detectives said a videotape at the store shows a group of teenagers using a stolen credit card to make the purchase.
