SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV-TV) — A Georgia woman and her brother were not seriously hurt after a turtle launched through the air and became lodged into the windshield of a car they were in.

Latonya Lark told WSAV-TV she was driving in Savannah this month when she saw an object that looked like a brick quickly approaching her windshield.

Lark says she began to slow down as the reptile smashed into the window. Her brother said he shielded his face from flying shards of glass.

Chatham County Police officers called for the car to be towed from the scene and the turtle was taken to an animal hospital where it later died.
