Yes, you read right - a SPIDER! Angela Kipp was backing out of her driveway in Indiana when she saw a spider on her shoulder. She freaked out and jumped out of the vehicle. The engine was still running and her 9 year old son was seated in the back seat.
In an attempt to save the day, her son climbed into the front seat but instead of stepping on the brakes, mistakenly pressed the gas pedal (accelerator to us non americans) and crashed into a school bus which happened to be passing at that time. He had minor head injuries which was caused by the fact he fell out of the driver's seat due to the impact of the collision. Luckily, there were no children in the bus and the driver was not hurt. Authorities say Angela will not be prosecuted as her phobia caused the accident.
