Someone definitely overreacted to a spider being in the car. A mom in Indiana jumped from the moving vehicle, leaving her 9-year-old son, who was injured when the car subsequently cashed (because most children don’t know how to drive).
A child was transported to a hospital with minor head injuries after a shock from spider caused a crash involving a school bus and a “driverless” car, according to the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department.
Around 4:15 p.m. Friday, deputies, along with Syracuse Police and Fire Units, responded to the area of 5571 E CR 1400 N on reports of a vehicle striking a school bus.
Officers arrived and found a 9-year-old boy lying outside a Dodge Avenger, which had collided with the bus.
Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Chad Hill said investigators at the scene determined the child’s mother, Angela K. Kipp, 35, of Syracuse, was originally backing out of her driveway. Hill said she reportedly jumped from the vehicle after there was a spider on her shoulder.
However, her son was still in the Dodge and climbed from the back seat to the driver’s seat to attempt to hit the brake pedal. Instead, he hit the accelerator while the Dodge was in reverse, causing it to collide with the passing Wawasee Corporation School Bus.
Thankfully there were no children on the school bus, or this accident could’ve been much worse. Also, how does your mom just leave you in a moving car to save herself? That seems wrong.
