A man lost control of his car and caused mayhem in a Connecticut street, after two snakes escaped from his pants.
Angel Rolon told police that he lost control of his sports utility vehicle after the baby reptiles distracted him by slithering over the throttle and brake pedals. Eyewitnesses then report seeing the 20-year-old’s vehicle swerving as he made a desperate bid to catch the creatures.
Alas, his efforts were to no avail, and the SUV crashed into some nearby parked cars before overturning in a street in Hartford, Connecticut.
Speaking about the bizarre incident, local police sergeant Christene Mertes said that Mr Rolon was subsequently rushed to hospital suffering from minor cuts and bruises – where he was charged with reckless driving and driving without a licence.
She also said that officers later recovered the snakes from the car – but there’s no news yet on whether they’ve been reunited with their hapless owner.
