That was a beautiful bird.
Many years ago, my cousin was driving on some rural stretch of highway... He was driving an old car, even for that time...and the floor-board behind
the driver's seat had a sizable hole in it...
While driving he saw that he was going to run over a rattlesnake -- and tried to miss it (with the wheels).
As he passed over it, he heard/felt the plunk...but did not see the snake in the roadway, when looking behind through his mirrors. This disturbed
him, so he pulled over and started inspecting any possible places it might have lodged in the under carriage, tire wells, etc...and saw nothing...
I'm sure you guessed it - the snake had somehow rebounded through the hole in the floorboard, and was resting dazily in the back seat area.
