A little kitten riding as a stowaway in a car’s engine compartment was discovered after the car was involved in a traffic accident. Kitty was very luckily unharmed despite the two dangerous sitations and found a home with the car’s owner, who also escaped injury in the crash.

The City of Little Rock, Arkansas Fire department told about the rescue at Facebook on July 9, writing:

“This morning Little Rock Firefighters and MEMS worked an accident at Interstates 430 & 30. The bumper of this car came off in the impact, and this kitten was found riding in the engine compartment! The driver and kitten were transported to the hospital to be checked out. The driver decided to keep the stray kitten, so it stayed at MEMS Headquarters until the driver picked it up. She named the kitten Hallelujah. Hallie for short.”
