Driver crashes into a post after he sees a spider in the car

Arachnophobia can be a big deal, as was for this motorist in the Isle of Wight who happened to crash into a post after he found out that a spider was in his car.

The unfortunate incident happened in Kite Hill, Wootton on Monday. According to the police, the man was trying to remove the spider and lost all focus from the road which resulted in the car smashing straight into a post.

Thankfully, the driver only received minor injuries and recovered from the accident just fine. The police reported,

“Our ARV/colleagues have had a busy afternoon. They currently are dealing with this vehicle on Kite Hill in Wootton so please bear this in mind when you are passing through this way as the traffic might be slightly slower moving until this vehicle is recovered.”

The road’s a dangerous place, and if you feel like something might deter your focus, it’s best to pull over and take care of the matter before continuing to drive.
