    Turtle power!

    Nicole Marie Bjanes was driving on I-4 in Deltona on Monday when a turtle came crashing through her windshield.

    Florida Highway Patrol officials said another car hit the turtle while it was crossing the highway and propelled it into the air. Bjanes posted photos on Facebook showing her shattered windshield with the turtle upside-down on her dashboard.

    "I really can't even believe it!!! Thanks for all your concern. I am a lucky girl," Bjanes wrote on her post. "All the people who stopped and the EMT and trooper were taking pics....unbelievable, and the guy at the hospital was laughing at how he should word the incident!!! Life is good and sometimes a little crazy....someone is keeping my on my toes and entertained."

    Bjanes said she was shaken up but otherwise alright. The turtle was checked out and also found to be in good shape and returned to some nearby water.
