Deputies got quite a surprise while investigating a car crash in western Kentucky.

A 6-foot-long python slithered out of the wreck.

McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden tells a local newspaper that the snake startled the first responders.

The car hit a mailbox, went into a ditch and then flipped over.

Authorities report the driver, 21-year-old Taylor Griffith, now faces charges that include drunken driving.
