Lucky tortoise survives busy motorwayAt the junction with the M23, a motorway that goes south toward Worthing, Formby said he spotted what he thought was a rock or piece of debris on the road.
"As I get closer to it, it's moving," Formby told CNN. "As I get closer, I recognize it as a tortoise."
Formby said he pulled over onto the hard shoulder of the road and went back to grab the animal.
"As I'm running back, there's a few cars coming up," he said. "About seven or eight cars had gone past it, but two cars had actually gone straight over the top of it. A white van drove over the top of it."
The tortoise had by that point made it from the middle lane to the slow lane, so Formby said he "jumped out (and) grabbed it." The animal didn't seem upset, he said -- "it seemed very determined just to get where it was going."
Formby put the tortoise in his car, fed it, and took it home to Worthing, where he brought it to a vet to see whether it had been microchipped. The vet found the chip, but it had no information on it.

must not have been heavy cars'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
