Police: Driver found with stolen snake after crash

NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. – Police said a New York woman who crashed her car into a Long Island firehouse was found to be in possession of marijuana – and a stolen snake wrapped around her neck.

Nassau County police said Sarah Espinosa, 22, of Albany was driving on Jericho Turnpike on Monday when she crossed the median and collided with a vehicle.

They said she continued through the front door of the New Hyde Park firehouse and hit two fire trucks.

Fire personnel found a small ball python around her neck.

Authorities said the snake was stolen from a nearby pet store before the accident.

Espinosa was arraigned Tuesday on charges including petit larceny, reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated. Bail was set at $5,000.

A court-appointed lawyer did not immediately comment.
