woman crashes over spider

*A woman in northern Indiana jumped from her moving car after seeing a spider crawling on her shoulder, leading to a crash that injured her 9-year-old son, who was in the back seat.

The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department says Angela Kipp, 35, of Syracuse, had been backing the car out of her driveway Friday afternoon when she saw the spider and jumped out while the car was still in reverse.

The boy climbed into the driver’s seat and tried to step on the brake but instead hit the gas pedal, sending the vehicle into a passing school bus.


The boy was taken to IU Health Goshen in stable condition with minor head injuries. No children were on the bus, and its driver wasn’t injured.
