Watercooler Talk
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police say a driver blamed a car crash in Hartford, Conn., on two pet baby snakes that he said escaped from his pants pockets as he was driving.

Hartford police Sgt. Christene Mertes says Angel Rolon, of New Britain, claimed he lost control of his SUV on Monday when the snakes slithered near the gas and brake pedals and he and a passenger tried to catch them. The SUV veered into some parked cars and overturned.

Mertes says animal control officers never found the snakes and police have been unable to confirm his story. Rolon was treated at a hospital for unknown injuries. Police say they gave him a summons for reckless driving and other charges.
