The large reptile suddenly appeared in the road in front of the group at night.

The driver tried to take evasive action, but hit the seven-foot-long croc and ended up slamming into a tree.

The four others in the vehicle were injured when tragedy struck in the early hours of yesterday (25 Apr) morning.

They were driving along a coastal road near Eldorado, Sinaloa State, Mexico when they hit the crocodile.

The four wounded were taken to the General Hospital of Culiacán.

Two of them suffered head trauma and three are said to be in a serious condition.

They have been named as Jesús Eduardo, 22, Itatí Guadalupe, 21, and Julia Amairany, 18. A 14-year-old girl was also killed, but remains unnamed.
