Snakes on a plane? No, this time it’s in a car

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A woman in the United States es­caped in­jury and man­aged to safely stop her car af­ter a me­tre-long rat snake came out of her dash­board and slith­ered across her feet as she drove. Rat snakes aren't ven­omous or gen­er­ally a threat to peo­ple, but Kelly Swisher says the snake she en­coun­tered gave her a “nails on a chalk­board” sort of feel­ing. “It was rough and scaly,” said Swisher, who was run­ning er­rands when it hap­pened. “I do not know if I had my hands on the steer­ing wheel or not. I am not the most flex­i­ble per­son in the world, but I can guar­an­tee my knees were up next to my ears.” She said the snake first slith­ered back into the dash­board and she hoped it would stay there un­til she was able to get off the main road and stop. “That did not work out,” she added. “Here he comes, and he wound up in my back seat.” Washington County an­i­mal con­trol of­fi­cers came and cap­tured the snake.
