LaBiche said that on first sight at the scene, there appeared to have been at least 30 venomous snakes being transported in the vehicle, along with an alligator and a turtle. The snakes included rattlesnakes, copperheads and water moccasins, a species of pit viper. One of the snakes was also a large diamondback rattle snake. The turtle, according to the International Business Times, was found very quickly after the accident.
Authorities said that thankfully, no one has been bitten as a result of the incident, but locals were alerted to the situation and told to remain vigilant.
