KELSO, MO (KFVS) - A car hit a Bald Eagle Monday in Scott County. It happened on Route 61 in Kelso.

According to KTVI-TV, Kevin Malone of Freeburg, Illinois was in Kelso to buy a motorcycle. He reportedly helped a conservation agent corral the injured bald eagle.

The conservation agent took the eagle to a veterinary clinic in Cape Girardeau.  However, the bird had to be euthanized due to a broken hip.
