According to FHP, 41-year-old Claudette Zoll, of Lithia, was traveling on the bridge northbound at the 34 milepost, when she saw a kitten fall out of a moving truck.

The kitten only suffered a minor cut.
The truck was only described as old and brown with a silver metal topper. It’s unclear whether the cat was thrown from the moving vehicle.
Zoll said she is going to keep the kitten and named her "Miracle."
