Driver finds snake slithering in her car

SANTA CLARITA, Calif.

Angie Guerrero was traveling southbound on the 14 Freeway when she noticed something slithering at her feet.

The worry set in when she realized it was a snake.

"I swerved and good thing the girl next to me was paying attention and she swerved with me," said Guerrero. "This is the first spot I could pull over. I grabbed the dogs and got out of my car."

It took CHP officers and her son-in-law nearly an hour to capture the snake because it kept hiding under the center console.

Officials said the snake was not aggressive and appeared to be a non-venomous king snake.

Guerrero says she has no idea how it got in her car in the first place.
