Alligator stops traffic on bridge

MONTGOMERY COUNTY - by KHOU 11 News and www.khou.com

A wrecker driver helped authorities get an alligator off of Highway 242 early Monday morning.

Just after 1:30 a.m. a Montgomery County Precinct 5 Deputy Constable was traveling westbound on the San Jacinto River bridge when she spotted an 8-foot alligator in the roadway stopping traffic. She notified dispatch and contacted Texas Parks and Wildlife.  

A wrecker driver who has handled alligators before assisted deputies in getting it off the roadway. The animal was secured with tape and rope and carried to the water's edge where it eventually swam away.

A witness said a vehicle hit the alligator just moments before the deputy arrived, but it did not appear to be hurt.
