What the shell?!

A Florida woman was hospitalized after a turtle smashed through the windshield of her car and hit her in the head, according to a report.

The 71-year-old was riding with her daughter on Interstate 95 Wednesday morning when the reptile came crashing in, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.

The daughter pulled over and got help from another motorist as she called the police.

“There is a turtle in there,” the man can be overheard saying in a 911 recording obtained by the newspaper.

“A turtle!” the daughter exclaimed. “An actual turtle?”

The gash in her mom’s forehead drew a lot of blood, but didn’t leave her seriously injured.

Dispatchers told the daughter to apply pressure to the wound in order to stop the bleeding until an ambulance got there to take her mom to the hospital.

“I swear to God this lady has the worst luck of anything,” the daughter told the 911 operator as she tended to her mom.

Meanwhile, the turtle was OK, with only a few scratches on its shell, according to cops.

The animal was likely crossing the interstate and got knocked into the air by another vehicle.

The turtle only had a few scratches on its shell after smashing through a windshield, cops said.
