CLOSE CALL! This video is terrifying. Watch as a truck nearly hits a woman crossing a Goochland-area road to chase after a dog. The person who sent the video said the woman appeared to be helping a turtle cross the road before the dog ran away. pic.twitter.com/PfPCXZ8vP8

According to WTVR, a woman was in the road trying to save a turtle when a forestry truck approached in the opposite lane. The turtle made it to safety, but as the truck advanced, her dog dashed across the road. Instinctively, the woman chased after him, running into the driver’s path.
Luckily, the driver was able to swerve just in time to miss her.
