“It was pretty bloody terrifying,”  is how an Australian truck driver described his encounter with a deadly snake in his cab … while driving 70 mph.

Last month, the trucker identified only as Jimmy, was stopped by police in Queensland, the northeasternmost state in Australia. The cops thought he was just speeding, when in reality he was fighting off the advances of an eastern brown snake, considered to be the world’s second most venomous snake, as he drove.
