PSA: Driving with snakes probably not the safest idea

An East Naples, Florida man has been cited for fleeing the scene of an accident, after crashing his Chrysler PT Cruiser into some barricades. Driver Courtland Page Johnson, 30, later told authorities he hit another car that braked suddenly in front of him.

Johnson later conceded that he was driving along the road with his pet snake wrapped around his neck, when something startled the reptile, causing it to bite its owner (apparently, snakes aren't given to commuting). In the ensuing commotion,  Johnson crashed his Cruiser.

Despite being "littered with cuts and dried blood," Johnson did not require medical assistance.
