On Tuesday, Nov. 3, while driving westbound on Florida State Road 528, a motorist experienced firsthand what happens when a Chevy Cruze meets an alligator at 70 mph. 

YouTube user addakorn was running his dash cam while traveling between Cocoa Beach and Orlando when he accidentally struck the alligator. Sadly, the gator did not survive and the Chevy Cruze's intercooler and radiator were completely destroyed.



As you can see in the video below, the gator came outta nowhere. Be safe out there, folks.
