You can imagine the stress caused by this episode. Even people not freaked out by snakes would have been rattled.
Beckie Kistler said she was driving down Interstate 485 on Wednesday when the snake slid down the driver’s side door toward her steering wheel.
The details on this story are nil but the video at this link help flesh it out. The snake crawled along the driver-side door startling the women who was driving in traffic. She managed to pull over and exit the car. Animal control recovered a small copperhead, a venomous snake, coiled up in her glove compartment. It’s possible that the snake entered the car via the wheel wells. While this story is unsettling, it’s extremely rare. However, do watch for cats that may hide inside the car.
