ORLANDO, Fla. – It’s something that you likely would never expect while driving down the highway.
However, Nicole Bjanes says she is lucky to be alive after a freak accident along I-4 in Orlando earlier this week.
Bjanes told WESH that a vehicle in front of her ran over a turtle in the middle lane of the highway.
Somehow, the turtle ended up crashing through her windshield, hitting the passenger’s seat and coming to rest on the dashboard.
Bjanes walked away with just a few cuts.
Amazingly, the turtle survived and appeared to be uninjured.
Emergency crews looked it over before releasing it into a nearby pond.
