PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA (WCMH) — We’re not sure why the turtle was trying to cross the road, but we do know it needed some help from a few concerned citizens, a police officer, and a little red wagon.
The Prince William County Police Department, posted a video to their Facebook page, April 21, featuring the large tortoise attempting to cross Linton Hall Road near Alexandria, Virginia.
In the video, the turtle, which appears to be a snapping turtle, is along the side of the busy roadway when a police officer picks it up and places it in a little red wagon.
With the help of the officer, a citizen pulls the turtle across the other side of the roadway in the wagon.
The police department provided no punchline as to why the turtle crossed the road.
