Snake!!

Police say a driver blamed a car crash [in] Connecticut on two pet baby snakes that he said escaped from his pants pockets as he was driving.

Hartford police Sgt. Christene Mertes says Angel Rolon claimed he lost control of his sports utility vehicle on Monday when the snakes slithered near the gas and brake pedals and he and a passenger tried to catch them.
