​Woman Crashes Into Wall After Spotting Spider In Car
Many of us aren't too keen on spiders - all those beady eyes staring up at us, those eight legs ready to pounce at any given moment. One might pop up while you're watching TV, only to scuttle off under the sofa before you've had a chance to even consider if you're feeling brave enough to remove it.But hopefully, your arachnophobia hasn't led you to crash your car, as one woman in America recently did.

Police in Cairo, New York, shared a photo of the unknown woman's wrecked car on Facebook, explaining she had spotted a spider while driving and 'panicked'.
The woman suffered a leg injury from the crash. By the looks of things, her car had a bit of a nasty bump, too. The post read: "Thank you again for the help Cairo Fire, Cairo Ambulance, Greene County Medics and Greene County Sheriffs."After investigating today's crash on Silver Spur Road we feel it necessary to bring up a contributing factor that is not covered too often. It is believed that the operator of the vehicle noticed a SPIDER in the driver's area with her as she was driving."The operator panicked and crashed suffering a leg injury from the crash."Urging arachnophobic drivers to try not to let their fear become life-threatening, the post added: "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. Lives depend on it."

Social media users commented on the post to say they could sympathise with what happened to the woman. One wrote: "I almost did the same thing luckily I was where I could pull over. It was in my blouse I never tore a blouse off faster, my husband was with me and he's yelling 'what are you doing??' I'm screaming 'spider'."Anyway, it happens and until it happens to you can't say you wouldn't do that. I am hoping the lady recovers."Another commented: "I have panicked with a spider that came down in front of me, Thankfully I didn't crash. My daughter's car, mice found their way in. Now my big fear is a mouse running over me while driving - hoping it never happens! Hope she'll be ok."
A third said: "Glad she is ok. That could be me, I've had to pull over suddenly and do a search. The fear is real."There's currently no confirmation on whether or not the spider made it out of the wreckage alive.
