Snake on car bonnet shocks family

A family from Tennessee had an unexpected passenger during a trip down a busy highway.

A large snake emerged from the windscreen wiper vents of their car and slithered across the bonnet before falling off the wing mirror.

Rachel and Tony Fisher, who filmed the incident, think the snake had been resting inside the car's engine.

Trystan Young reports.
