A man in Arizona says a snake popped out from under the hood of his car and started to climb up the windshield. It retreated back under the hood and was never found.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. Layrd Mahler was driving near Phoenix when a snake slithered out from under his hood and climbed up the windshield, local news reports. Mr. Mahler turned on his wipers, which the snake treated like a carnival ride, swinging happily up and down. You can watch all of this because, inexplicably, Mr. Mahler began taking video while driving, during a snake attack. He finally pulled over, but he never found that snake, who maybe jumped on a plane instead.
