Turtle causes parkway wreck, then dies
UPPER TOWNSHIP, N.J. - Why did the turtle cross the road? We'll never know, but it sure caused one heck of an accident. A woman who swerved to avoid hitting the reptile as it crawled across the northbound lanes of the Garden State Parkway Tuesday afternoon lost control of her car, crashed through a guardrail and tumbled down an embankment before the car flipped over onto its roof.
Saranne Goldinger, 65, of Cape May, was wearing a seat belt and was not critically injured, State Police said. Her car, however, was heavily damaged.
The turtle fared even worse. A vehicle that had been driving behind Goldinger flattened the critter.
"All of that for nothing," Trooper Scott Farkas told The Press of Atlantic City for Wednesday's newspapers.
