Pair Avoid Serious Harm After Turtle Crashes Through Their Car Window

Pair Avoid Serious Harm After Turtle Crashes Through Their Car Window

An American woman and her brother were nearly involved in a serious car accident when a turtle was somehow launched into the air and came crashing through her windscreen.

Latonya Lark and her brother were driving down the Harry S. Truman Parkway in Savannah, Georgia when the unlikely passenger entered the car.

At first, the pair spotted what looked to be a brick speeding towards their car through the air, but when Lark began to slow down, the projectile - which turned out to be a turtle - shattered the front window.

Her brother Kevin was in the passenger seat at the time but managed to shield his face as the animal battered through the windshield and sent glass flying through the air towards them.

However, the turtle was not so lucky, and died from its injuries at a local animal hospital later on.

Grant said: "When the glass broke, the first thing that came to my mind was just to shield myself, so it was just like, you know, turn and just cover,"

The car itself was in bad shape and the Chatham County Police had to call the tow truck to get it out of the road.

The officer also had to perform the grim task of extracting the poor creature from the car's front.

Lark reckons that another car might have hit the turtle first and sent it flying to the air, before it eventually collided with their car.

She explained: "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."

Now, she's launched a fundraiser to help offset the costs that she's incurred from this strange and unusual incident.

She claims she's had to take days off work because her 'anxiety was high' and so was her 'blood sugar'.

So far, it's not going that well. She's only raised $20 of her original $650 goal.

You have to wonder how you would explain such an incident to an insurance company in the first place.

It's probably not every day that they receive a claim which includes the cost of fixing a perfect turtle-shaped hole from the front windscreen of a car.

Well, you'd hope it's not every day, anyway.
