Motorists Stunned After Paramedics Confirm Road Is Closed Because A Crocodile Caused An Accident

Motorists were left stunned when paramedics told them that a road had been closed because a crocodile had been involved in an accident. 

There is a long-standing joke in the emergency services about being asked by members of the public why a road has been closed. 

Often, the standard response to such a question is ‘shark attack’.

So when a member of the public who was driving from Blackwood was met by a road closure, she did what many other motorists do. 

She asked why the road had been closed. 

The paramedic replied politely by saying that a crocodile had been run over. 

In a post shared on social media, the startled motorist said:

‘Can’t even write this s**t. Driving to Blackwood and the lane up to Cefn Forest all the cars were turning. 

‘The paramedics stopped me and said that you can’t go up there there is a crocodile that had been run over. 

‘So I laughed at him.

‘He said no love; I am being serious; a crocodile escaped from its home, and a car swerved to miss it and went straight into another car’.

The person who spotted the post on social media and who sent a screenshot of it into us said:

‘We all joke about the “shark attack” story at a road closure but a colleague has told a MoP that a crocodile is loose and it’s being shared by every Tom Dick and Harry now locally. Creased’.

Thankfully, the crocodile and the motorists were all ok. 

The witness added:

‘to be honest, I couldn’t wait to get out of there in case the crocodile was still on the loose. 

‘this has been a very strange year indeed’.
