WICHITA, KS – On Saturday at around 3:15 p.m., Brandon Husband and his wife Jennifer were riding a motorcycle southeast on River Road when suddenly the bird flew out of a nearby ditch and struck Brandon, 43, in the head, according to Kansas Highway Patrol.
Brandon then swerved their Harley-Davidson off the road and into a barbed-wire fence, the Highway Patrol says.
The bike then overturned. Neither Brandon nor Jennifer were wearing a helmet during the crash.
Brandon was pronounced dead at the scene, The Wichita Eagle reports. Jennifer, who was known as Lynn by family and friends, was rushed to Wichita Hospital in critical condition. She died seven hours later, the outlet reported.
