When he spotted a snake inside the car, a driver in England who was on his way to deliver a car was forced to take an unanticipated detour.

The driver was transporting a car from a dealership in Tipton, West Midlands, to a customer in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, when he noticed a 5-foot snake slithering out of the dashboard, according to the Linjoy Wildlife Sanctuary and Rescue.

Rescuers from Linjoy arrived on the scene quickly but found that the snake had buried itself within the vehicle.

The driver was persuaded to continue the journey for another fifteen minutes to the home of Lindsay Newell, the owner of Linjoy, where she and a friend named Mark were able to access the elusive reptile by removing the carpet, plastic trims, and passenger seat.

The snake was identified as a harmless corn snake.
