A 71-year-old woman is lucky to be alive after being hit in the head by a turtle that smashed through the windshield of a car she was riding in.
The woman was apparently riding in a car with her daughter, driving on Florida’s I-95. She suffered a gashed forehead when the turtle struck her.
Her daughter quickly pulled the car over and got help from another motorist who was shocked by what he found in their car. “There is a turtle in there,” the man exclaimed.
Authorities believe the turtle was likely trying to cross the interstate and got sent flying into the air by another vehicle.
Both the woman and the turtle made it out of the collision alive.
