Anthony Ewart says he was forced to stop in the intersection to avoid running over the kitten.
He says he motioned for a woman in a Jeep Laredo next to him to stop, as well.
When he tried to pick the kitten up, it ran under the Jeep and then climbed into the undercarriage of the vehicle.
That’s when Ewart called in firefighters, who crawled under the SUV and plucked the kitten to safety.
The kitten was later ‘adopted’ by someone at the firehouse.
