GILLETTE (WNE) — Arachnophobia can be expensive.
Just ask the 57-year-old woman who crashed her 2005 Toyota Tacoma into a 2006 Coachmen Camper on Thursday afternoon in the 1000 block of Buckskin Drive.
She wasn’t hurt, but the camper and her Tacoma had more than $1,000 damage, according to Gillette Police.
The reason for the crash?
She was spooked by a spider that landed on her while she was driving. While distracted, she crashed into the camper, said Lt. Brent Wasson.
Police contacted the 55-year-old man who owned the camper and the driver was ticketed for improper lookout, Wasson said.
It is unclear if the spider survived.
