Australian man bitten after snake slithers into open car door

An Australian man was rushed to the hospital last week after a snake sneakily slithered into his car after he left the door open, according to police.

The unidentified 54-year-old man, who was with his dog, said he stopped at Back Creek Park, near Millmerran in Queensland, to swim on Friday night. He left his car door open, and the serpent found its way inside.
