SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

It was the type of car ride nightmares are made out of.

Try to imagine this: You're making your way down the interstate when all of a sudden, you notice a huge snake dangling right by your driver's side window.

For Becky Reeves Castro of Spartanburg, this was no imaginary tale. This was real life.

Reeves said she, her boyfriend and her mother-in-law were all traveling from Roebuck in a truck down I-26 on Thursday when it happened.

She shared footage of the terrifying incident with us, and you've been warned - the commentary is GOLD.

Becky and the other passengers inside the truck can be heard discussing the incident in real time on the video.

"I'm telling you I'm ready to jump out of here!" said one passenger.

Reeves's boyfriend can be heard saying he kept seeing a shadow before the snake appeared. Some surprise he was in for when the reptile made his big debut!

Reeves, on the other hand, got some giggles out of the incident.

"About that time, the big black snake came across the corner, and he was busy trying to figure out how to get in. Of course everyone panicked!" said Reeves."Everyone grabbed their cell phones. I was laughing because I was raised on a farm and I was used to black snakes."

Luckily, the snake made it out of this fiasco alive. Becky and her accomplices dropped the snake off at another location before journeying on to their destination.
