Let me start off by saying I am not scared of spiders....sorta!

I see them all the time and when I do I grab a shoe "POW" and keep it moving.

However, there is some anxiety when I'm driving in the car minding my own business and I see one crawl across the dash or come out of the air vent unexpectedly and I would go into a complete panic.

So, when ABC 13 reported in Houston that a 5 car accident was caused when a driver saw a spider I could understand.


Harris County Sheriff was on the scene and Captain J. Shannon also said in a tweet that three of the 5 cars were parked at the time.

While I am glad that the driver wasn't injured and no fatalities I can understand the situation and circumstances.

No word if the driver was issued a citation.
