Beware of Flying Turtles in Georgia.

Earlier this month a woman was driving down a highway with her brother, when she spotted what she thought was a brick flying through the air, heading towards her car, according to WSAV.

Then, a turtle smashed smashed into and lodged itself in her windshield — just inches away from her brother.

The woman only suffered a few minor cuts, but the turtle wasn't so lucky -- it had lost a leg and later died from losing too much blood, according to the report.

Police said they don’t know how the reptile became airborne, but the woman thinks perhaps it was struck by the car in front of her and sent flying into the air.
