KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) - A slithery hitchhiker gave a Tennessee driver quite a surprise when it popped out of a dashboard vent.
Jim Tipton was driving home on the highway when he saw the snake in his car. He then pulled off the road, set the brake and got out of the vehicle.
The car was towed to a service shop where workers later found a small corn snake. The critter did not survive the highway adventure.
A winter storm warning is in effect for most of Central Indiana.
An Illinois man was killed late Thursday when the car he was driving was struck by a semi tractor on I-70 about three miles west of the Cambridge City exit.
It's very rare that a single person can reach across national, racial, and spiritual borders to bring such hope and healing.
