    Talking Snake Crashes Car!

    Florida man crashes car after pet snake he had wrapped around neck bit him

    NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A man crashed his car after a pet snake he had wrapped around his neck began attacking him, authorities said.
    Witnesses reported seeing Courtland Page Johnson, 30, of East Naples, driving erratically before he crashed his PT Cruiser into several barricades at about 9 p.m. Tuesday. He got out of his car, wrestled with the snake and then drove off, reports said.

    When authorities caught up with Johnson at his home, he told them he crashed into another car that had stopped short in front of him. After questioning, Johnson admitted he panicked when his snake bit him.

    He had cuts and freshly dried blood on his body, but did not need medical attention, reports said.

    Johnson was charged with leaving the scene of a crash.
