A flying turtle smashed into a car windscreen on a freeway in the USA earlier this month.
The incident reportedly happened in Georgia, USA, on May 12, 2020, when Latonya Lark was driving down the Savanna freeway with her brother, Kevin Grant.
The turtle is thought to have been clipped by another car, causing it to fly into the air and into the windscreen of Latonya.
The turtle penetrated through the glass and became embedded.
The windscreen was badly damaged, Latonya was unharmed, while Kevin only suffered a few minor cuts.
My prior delimer… Mr Turtle was found at fault but he did not have insurance. He got escorted to the Wildlife reserve,…
While sharing the incident on Facebook, Latonya said:
My prior delimer… Mr Turtle was found at fault but he did not have insurance. He got escorted to the Wildlife reserve, I got stuck with the bill. So beware Savannah of flying turtle on the Truman Parkway. My brother almost lost his head. Besides my sugar going off the roof.. I am fine but disturbed.
After the post went viral, she talked with the local news agency WSAV News.
Even the police officer said if that glass wasn’t as thick as it was and I didn’t slow down the way I did when I saw the object coming, it would’ve been disastrous.
After the incident, Latonya said it is important for everyone to pay close attention when they are driving.
If people are not paying attention to the road…you know, whoever hit that turtle, they had to have been flying.
The turtle that burst through the windshield was taken away to the Savannah Animal Care for medical treatment.
The poor one lost a leg in the process.
Son May 26, 2020, the poor one passed away that the reptile died after sustaining blood loss.
