North Carolina woman says catfish smashed her car's windshield

Drivers will take extra caution in one North Carolina town as a new road hazard - besides the usual deer, skunk, dogs and cats - have been added to the list of critters to be on the lookout for – flying catfish, according to reports.

Rhesa Walston, who lives in the eastern portion of the Tar Heel State, posted on Facebook that she was driving home Wednesday night when a large bird carrying the fish dropped it onto her car in Washington, N.C., at about 5 p.m., McClatchy News reported.
