No wonder their tyre was hissing! Stunned Thai motorist finds 6ft python tangled in their car wheel after accidentally running the reptile over

  • Surasit Sukwattana mistook a 6ft python for a piece of wood in his car wheel
  • Noticed wheel was jammed while driving in Pattaya, Thailand on September 13
  • Rescue team used cross wrench to remove the wheel and revealed dead snake

 

A driver found a huge python entangled in his wheel after accidentally running it over and mistaking it for a piece of wood. 

Surasit Sukwattana, 38, was travelling home in the dark when he hit the snake in Pattaya, central Thailand on September 13.

Motorists thought the 6ft-long reptile was a log and kept driving until Surasit realised that his front wheel was jammed.

Surasit stopped the car and was shocked to see a huge python tangled inside the wheel.

In the bizarre clip, the snake's head is bowed and poking through the front wheel as the car is parked on the roadside.

One man shines a torch at the python for a clearer look at what is going on while other local residents gather to capture the moment on their camera's. 

And moments later, the rescue team arrive and one member crouches down beside the python.

The rescue team used a cross wrench tool to try and remove the wheel and free the snake. The driver Surasit had been driving home when he noticed something was wrong with his car

They use a cross wrench tool and car jack to try and remove the wheel while another shines the torch.

Revealing an unresponsive and wounded snake on the graveled road, the rescue team member lifts the reptile and lowers it into a bag. They discover that it had already died by the time they arrived. 

Surasit said: 'The street was so dark and when I saw it I thought it was some log so I continued driving and ran over it.

'I did feel when my car trample on some object. I am so sad that it was a snake that I ran over.'
