Even with all of today’s electronic gadgets being implicated in more and more car accidents, sometimes it’s the creepy old fashioned distractions that get you.
Police responding to a report of single car incident on a two-lane road passing through farm country in Lancaster County, Penn., on April 7 found a vehicle crashed into a utility pole, Fox 43 reports.
When they asked the driver how he lost control of his car, he said that “he thought there was a spider on his lap and panicked.”
The man was uninjured, but his vehicle had to be towed away.
The whereabouts of the alleged spider are unknown at this time.
