motorcycle rattlesnake accidentA biker crashed his motorcycle yesterday in New Orleans, LA, while carrying a rattlesnake.

He had the snake strapped down on the back, when somehow, the snake appeared to have gotten loose, and the biker lost his concentration...
Police accident investigators don't know how, when or where the cyclist had gotten the rattlesnake, and where he was taking it or why. But they said they believed the presence of the snake and the possibility that the driver was trying to keep it from falling off the bike while heading into a right-hand bend in the eastern New Orleans road caused the accident.
And no he wasn't riding a Harley; he was riding a BMW.

A witness following behind the rider, saw the snake dangling behind the motorcycle, and the rider himself twisted backward trying to tend to the loose serpent. The rider was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
