A four foot snake was found by a Winslow woman in her car during her daily commute.
Kelly Swisher says she can finally relax now knowing that the large reptile is no longer curled up in her black four door car.
“My heart nearly stopped because that thing was in here with me,” explained Swisher.
The large rat snake pictured above sent shock waves through Swishers body when it hit her feet during her drive. She says she is just lucky she didn’t wreck.
“I don’t remember much about it. Panic kind of took over. The only thing I know is God had his hand on me and on my car.”
Swisher says she called 9-1-1 to get some help.
“She asked me to repeat my request and I told her I had a snake in my car,” said Swisher.
Minutes later officers and animal control showed up. With some help they took apart the glove box and removed the snake.
Swisher says she thinks the snake crawled in her car during the recent bad weather and never left. Despite the her fear of snakes she says she now has a great story to tell.
