What are the odds of a flying turtle crashing your car window? Well, it’s not the most common thing you expect to experience while driving your vehicle, right? Anyway, this was not the case for Latonya Lark and Kevin Grant.
Latonya Lark and Kevin Grant were casually driving around Harry S. Truman Parkway in Savannah, Georgia, just like another day while running some errands. Suddenly, they saw something flying fast towards their car. They thought it was a brick and were scared in case it might hit either the car or them or both.
‘I thought it was a brick, and I told [my brother], ‘my God, there’s a brick!’
It was Lark who was driving and Grant tried his best to calm his sister down and get her to stop the car. Thankfully, it stopped at hitting the car’s windshield but got stuck in there, only a few inches away from Grant’s face. What’s even strange was that it was not a brick but a turtle!
This rare accident caused damage to the car that it was reported by police not in a condition to be driven and had to be towed. The assumption is that another vehicle must have hit the turtle and that speed caused the turtle to come flying towards the car smashing the window shield.
‘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.’
Although Grant and Lark suffered no injuries, the turtle dies from its injuries after it was taken to the Savannah animal hospital.
