Woman Totals Her Car After Getting Scared By A Spider—And Honestly We Totally Get It

A driver totaled her vehicle on Wednesday while driving along Silver Spur Road in Cairo, New York.

And it was all due to an itsy bitsy perpetrator.

The female driver discovered a spider on her dashboard and allegedly panicked, causing her to lose control of her black sedan and crash into a wooded area off the road.

The whereabouts of the eight-legged entity remain unknown.

The Cairo New York Police Department posted a warning on their Facebook page and instructed drivers to overcome their fears and safely pull over after discovering an arachnid stowaway.

“We know that it is easier for some drivers than others,” they said.

YOU THINK‽

“Lives depend on it,” added the Police Department, to drive the point home.

Joking aside, the unnamed female driver survived the crash but suffered a leg injury.

People shared their brushes with death from an arachnid encounter.

In case anyone was wondering about Spidey.

Others like Sharyn were less fearful.

Vengeful is more like it.

Like the police said, it might not be easy for all drivers to remain calm and pull over. But just know that having the spider in your line of sight while safely stopping your vehicle is better than it suddenly pulling a vanishing act.

What’s that in your ear?
