Sad Story This

Get run over once, shame on driver.
Get run over twice, shame on snake.
A rare snake that had been saved once after a tangle with cars and trucks has been found dead after being run over by a truck.
Andrews captured and tagged No. 039 in 2004 as part of scientists' rediscovery of the species, which had been thought to be extinct in Vermont.

Granted it was probably the nice warm road that attracted it, but getting run over twice implies that this snake was just not destined for the gene pool.
