GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C.(CNN) — A South Carolina state representative encountered one of nature’s speed bumps.

Rep. Wendell Gilliard shared this video of a large alligator crossing the road in front of his car.

The encounter happened while he was driving back to Charleston from Myrtle Beach over the weekend.

He said he came across the reptile in the Sandy Island area.

The gator is seen moving back and forth across the road.

After going one direction, it performs an about-face and returns to a nearby body of water.
