Bec found a story about a Florida woman who was hit by a flying turtle! It’s not unusual for rocks and other debris to crash through a windshield and injure a driver or passenger — but a turtle?

A 71-year-old woman was driving in a car with her daughter when a turtle smashed through the windshield of their car, striking her. Although the lady received a big gash to her head, no-one was seriously injured including the turtle which only sustained a few scratches.

The daughter pulled over and got help from another motorist. According to a 911 recording, both were surprised by what they found.

“There is a turtle in there,” the man can be overheard saying.

“A turtle!” the daughter exclaimed. “An actual turtle?”

The turtle was likely crossing the interstate and got knocked into the air by another vehicle.

The turtle, on the other hand, had the best luck of anything — it just had a few scratches on its shell and was released back into the nearby woods.
