A Clover man was arrested this week after the rubber snake he tossed on S.C. 55 just outside town caused a crash, according to a York County Sheriff’s Office report.
At the scene of an accident on Sept. 13, a 17-year-old woman driving a Honda told a sheriff’s deputy that when she saw people beside the highway throw a rubber snake in the road then drag it back with a string, she slammed on her brakes to avoid the snake.
She said she then heard tires screech as a white Dodge truck crashed into the back of her car.
Although the accident caused roughly $8,000 in damage, no one was injured.
Stafford Farris, 20, was later arrested and charged with “putting a foreign substance on highway with malice.”
