A driver is likely going to have to file a unique insurance claim after his vehicle was damaged when he hit and dragged a 10-foot gator in Montgomery County.
Anthony Jackson was driving the posted speed heading eastbound on the Grand Parkway around 3 a.m. Thursday. As he was crossing the San Jacinto Bridge, he hit a 300-pound gator that was in the road and dragged it under his vehicle for nearly a mile, according to authorities.
Jackson was not injured, but the gator did not survive the crash, officials said. It was loaded onto a wrecker while officials waited for a decision from the game warden about what to do with the body.
Ultimately, the game warden decided on a “burial by sea” and the gator’s body was dumped into the San Jacinto River.
