Authorities say a northern Indiana woman jumped from her moving car after discovering a spider on her shoulder. The car crash injured her 9-year-old son. The boy riding in the backseat climbed into the driver’s seat and tried to step on the brake but instead hit the gas pedal, sending the vehicle into a passing school bus. The boy had minor head injuries. No children were on the bus, and its driver wasn’t injured.
Police say 35-year-old Angela Kipp had been backing the car out of her driveway Friday afternoon when she saw the spider and leaped out while the car was still in reverse.
No charges have been laid at this point. Should she be charged?
I hate them too but this could have been so much worse. Better to let the thing crawl on you then risk your child or someone else’s life.
