Berlin (AP) — Is this the definition of a slow-moving hazard?
German police say a driver lost control of his car after slipping on a slimy trail left by a procession of snails that were making their way across the highway.
The car — an old East German Trabant — flipped over and was wrecked, but the driver was unhurt.
Police said the incident happened early Wednesday near Paderborn, about 350 kilometers (220 miles) west of Berlin.
