Florida woman nearly crashes car after snake crawls out of air vent


A Florida woman was surprised to find an uninvited passenger in her car last week.

Monica Dorsett of Venice, Florida, was traveling down the highway when a snake crawled out of her car's air vent.

Her daughter, Kristina Dorsett, posted the evidence to Twitter.
According to Buzzfeed News, Dorsett called her husband to get rid of the snake after she slammed it in the car door, which is unfortunate since it appears to be a non-venomous red rat snake.

Dorsett told Buzzfeed that she's "not opening those vents for a long time."
