Woman, snake and fire station involved in Long Island car crash

By Walter McDaniel     Aug 5, 2014 in Technology
Hyde Park - Sarah Espinosa, 22, had allegedly been out drinking and taking drugs. And she stole a python. She then went out for a drive which ended in an unusual crash and rescue.
Rescue workers state that she crashed her 2010 Toyota Prius into a firehouse and rescue workers inside the station came out to save her. She actually rammed through the door and into two fire trucks as well. The accident occurred while a python was wrapped around her neck.
Somehow Espinosa suffered injuries so mild that they were not even reported as "minor" by police and local media and she looks fine in videos.
According to reports from Newsday no one received injuries in the incident, not even the python.
As for the rescue workers themselves the station will need minor repairs but none of their team was hurt. While firefighters are always face the risk of injury while saving people few of them expect an emergency in the station itself.
Espinosa herself now faces charges including second-degree reckless endangerment, reckless driving, driving while intoxicated, unlawful possession of marijuana and petty larceny. She is being held on $5,000 cash bail and has entered a plea of "not guilty" with the court.
Rescuers reportedly had to remove the python itself from around her neck and reporters mention that it choking her may have contributed to the crash. Since these animals are constrictors the car crash was just one danger in the incident.
