Georgia woman jumps from her Kia van and lets it roll into a river after a spider crawled on her lap

The unidentified woman told Georgia State Troopers that she was so spooked by an arthropod that jumped onto her lap that she abandoned her vehicle and watched as it, and presumably the eight-legged creepy crawler, disappeared underwater, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

A woman’s van ended up in the bottom of a river after she jumped out of the vehicle because a spider crawled onto her lap.

The woman told Georgia state troopers that she was trying to back her Kia van down Neel’s Landing Boat Launch to put her kayak in the Etowah river.

However she abandoned the van after getting a fright when a spider crawled on her lap and watched as it rolled down the river, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.    

Police sent a trooper to the boat launch in the western part of Bartow County near Kingston. 

But by the time he had arrived, the van had disappeared in the river and couldn’t be found in the immediate vicinity. 

The driver’s insurance company will reportedly foot the bill to have divers search for the van to determine if it can be salvaged. 

The woman’s identity, as well as the type of spider, has not been revealed. 

‘She stated that it floated downstream a few feet,’ a GSP spokesman told the publication. 

‘And within seconds, it was totally submerged. A passerby in a boat attempted to locate the van, but without success.’

The Etowah River flows for 163 miles and runs through Lake Allatoona, entering Floyd County where Bartow’s George Washington Carver park is located.

There are four canoe and kayak entry and exit sites, with 17 miles of the river accessible for water sports and recreation activities.
