April 25 (UPI) -- A snapping turtle in Virginia crossed a busy road with the help of a police officer, some bystanders, and a little red wagon.

The Prince William County Police Department posted a video to Twitter showing what happened when an officer responded Friday to Linton Hall Road, where a group of people had found a snapping turtle attempting to cross the busy street.

The video shows the officer carefully lift the snapping turtle into a bystander's red wagon.

The officer then escorts the woman pulling the wagon across the road.

"How did this turtle cross Linton Hall Road? With the help of a few concerned citizens, a careful officer and a little red wagon of course!" the tweet reads.
