A turtle crashes into a car on I-4 in Volusia County.

DELTONA, Fla. - It's one shell of a story!

A turtle crashed through the windshield of a car traveling on Interstate 4 in Volusia County -- and survived.

The freak accident happened Monday on I-4 west near Deltona, the Florida Highway Patrol said.


According to troopers, a vehicle clipped the turtle, sending it into the air. The turtle then crashed through the windshield of another car, shattering its windshield and landing on the dashboard, the FHP said.

The driver, an Orlando woman, suffered minor cuts and was treated at the scene, according to the FHP.

Nicole Marie Bjanes later posted photos on Facebook, showing the turtle lying on her car's dashboard.

The FHP said the turtle was checked out by wildlife officers and released after being deemed OK.
