NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say a New York woman who crashed her car into a Long Island fire house was found to be in possession of marijuana - and a stolen snake wrapped around her neck.

Nassau County police say Sarah Espinosa, of Albany, was driving west on Jericho Turnpike on Monday when she crossed the center median and struck a vehicle. They say she continued through the front door of the New Hyde Park fire house and collided with two fire trucks.

Fire personnel rushed to her aid and were surprised to find a small ball python around her neck.

Authorities say the snake had been stolen from a nearby pet store shortly before the accident.

Espinosa faces charges including reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated. It wasn't immediately clear if she had a lawyer.
