Alligator Flips Truck

Just over ther Tallmadge Bridge..
Around 5am, Jasper County, South Carolina and Savannah Fire emergency crews responded to a pick-up truck that had flipped over into the marsh, off the side of the bridge that crosses Little Back River along Hwy 17 on the South Carolina side.
Witnesses say a pickup approaching the bridge hit an alligator in the middle of the road, then ran off the bridge landing in the marsh below on its side. The driver of the truck was pulled from the marsh, and is being taken to Memorial University Medical Center. There is no word on his condition. The Alligator did not remain at the scene and the Police are looking for him.
