(Meredith) – A New York driver crashed into a stone wall after panicking over a spider inside her vehicle, police said.
The unidentified woman noticed the critter in the driver's area of her car Wednesday, according to the Cairo Police Department. Moments later, she veered off the road and crashed.
Police said the woman totaled her car and suffered a leg injury.
The police department posted photos of the crash to Facebook, along with a warning to other drivers who may also have a fear of spiders:
"We know that it is easier for some drivers than others, but PLEASE try to teach new drivers and yourselves to overcome the fear and pull over to a safe place," the department wrote. "Lives depend on it."
