Driver Rolls Car After Stowaway Spider Drops Into Her Lap

Incredibly, she walked away with a minor scratch.

A driver rolled and totaled her car after a spider dropped down from the rearview mirror and into her lap.

The unidentified woman somehow only sustained a minor scratch on her hand following the dramatic crash in the Bonny Slope neighborhood of Portland, Oregon, on Wednesday morning.

“Spider season in full swing,” the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a Twitter post, alongside an image of the overturned vehicle.

Deputies said the woman was nearing an intersection when the arachnid made its surprising descent. She lost control of the car and rolled it into a ditch.

The fate, and exact species, of the spider remains unclear.
