A Michigan man’s arachnophobia manifested into an even greater fear as an eight-legged distraction caused the driver to veer off the highway and into a ditch.

According to the Leelanau County Sheriff's Office in Northern Michigan, a 26-year-old man lost control of his SUV after seeing a spider, and he crashed into some trees on the side of the road.

The driver was uninjured, and the female passenger in the car injured her wrist, but was treated by the local fire department.
