DRIVER FILMS SNAKE ON HIS WINDSHIELD; VIDEO COMES BACK TO BITE HIM


Warning: The video below may be disturbing if you hate snakes and may even be disturbing if you really like them, so proceed at your own peril.

An American truck driver gained international notoriety last week when he posted the video below of a rather large snake writhing up his windshield. Looking to document the unusual scene, he grabbed his phone and filmed the incident.

He then posted the video online to share with his friends, not anticipating that it would go viral and receive nearly three million views in just days. One of those viewers was his safety manager, who reportedly fired the driver for violating its policy against the use of handheld devices while driving.

I think the driver here deserves a little credit for keeping the truck on the road, because if that snake was on my windshield I’m not sure I would’ve been able to do so.
