May 9 (UPI) -- A driver in Michigan said a spider in his vehicle caused him to drive off the road and crash.

The Leelanau County Sheriff's Office shared a photo of the scene of the crash that occurred when the 26-year-old man caused his GMC Envoy SUV to roll over after spotting a spider near his head.


"The driver stated he was northbound on South Good Harbor Trail when he was distracted by a spider on the visor above his head," the sheriff's office said.

After noticing the spider, the man veered to the side of the road and rolled down into a ditch through heavy brush before landing against some trees.

The driver was not injured in the crash but a 29-year-old female passenger sustained a wrist injury that was treated at the scene.
