Jennifer Rosinski of Cooper City is lucky to be alive after her car had her run-in with a 9-foot alligator on Interstate 75 near North Port Tuesday night.

"The trooper told me I had gone airborne and landed and flipped six or seven times. It felt like forever," Rosinski told FOX 13 News.

WIMAUMA, Fla. — A man riding a motorcycle hit an alligator that was crossing a rural Florida road, throwing him from his bike.

The Florida Highway Patrol said in a news release that 27-year-old Calun Nelson was riding his motorcycle south of Tampa early Friday when he saw the more than 10-foot (3.05-meter) alligator crossing the road in front of him. He tried to avoid the gator, but couldn't.

Troopers say Nelson was taken to a Tampa hospital with serious injuries.

Television station WFLA (http://bit.ly/2qZlm6s ) reports an alligator trapper was called to retrieve the gator's body.

It's the second accident this week in Florida involving an alligator. On Tuesday a driver on Interstate 75 escaped serious injury when she hit an alligator near Sarasota.

How do you go airborne after hitting a alligator?

It is like hitting a log, it does happen. You hit anything at speed and watch out!

Deer/motorcycle collisions are quite common around here.

I hit a freshly hit, big buck on I-44 near Tulsa 10 years ago around 4 in the morning. I was in my 3/4 ton truck and bounced right over the top of him. If he wasn't dead before I hit him, he sure was afterwards. Blood and guts were all over the bottom of my truck, and it tore one of my running boards loose. After I bounced over him I saw another car pulled over 50 yards down the road with major front end damage. Must have nailed him first, and I got him second.

It doesn't take anything as big as a gator to put you airborne on a motorcycle. A small dog can do it and don't bother asking how I know.
