Large Alligator Causes Two Crashes On 275 In Pinellas
The Florida Highway Patrol says a 12-foot alligator was crossing Interstate 275 early Sunday morning when it was hit by a Toyota sedan. The creature managed to escape into the woods.
The gator then showed up on the Southbound lanes of 275 near Gandy Boulevard and was struck by a Kia.
Both cars were damaged in the accidents, but their drivers were unscathed. The alligator died after it was hit the second time and a trapper came to take its carcass away.
