Indiana: A woman in Indiana who was driving her nine-year-old son, jumped off her moving car after she spotted a spider, sparking a series of mishaps, according to a report in DailyMail.
According to authorities in Syracuse, Indiana, the 35-year-old Angela Kipp was backing the car out of her driveway on Friday afternoon, when she saw a spider crawling on her shoulder. Her extreme fear of spiders made her jump off the car.
The Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office said that Ms Kipp’s arachnophobia got the best of her and she jumped out of the car speeding in reverse, leaving her child to fend for himself.
However, the quick thinking boy immediately moved into the driver’s seat in an attempt to stop the car, but instead of pressing the brake, he stepped on the gas pedal, causing the car further spin out of control and collide with a passing school bus.
According to reports, officers found the young boy outside his mother’s Dodge Avenger in the 5500 block of East co Road 1400 North in Syracuse.
He was taken to a hospital and survived minor injuries and is in a stable condition. Luckily, no students were on the school bus that the car collided with and the driver escaped unscathed.
No charges have been filed against Ms Kipp yet and it not known if the woman will face arrest due to the wreckage caused by her intense fear.
