Gator Update (Traffic Hazard Edition)

Dead gator causes tanker to overturn - 04/04/2008 - "A tractor trailer toppled Friday morning as the driver veered to avoid what appeared to be debris on southbound Okeechobee Road.

The real culprit: the remains of a nine- to 10-foot alligator.

The driver, Steven Johnson, 43, of Riverview, suffered only minor cuts and bruises but the rollover led authorities to shut down both northbound and southbound lanes on Okeechobee to transfer 9,200 gallons of liquid propane to another tractor trailer."
