People really can’t handle spiders, can they?
The woman told a state trooper she was trying to back her Kia van down the Neel’s Landing Boat Launch to put her kayak in the river when a spider jumped in her lap.
Naturally, she jumped out of the van. The van then rolled into the river, the Georgia State Patrol said.
The agency sent a trooper to the boat launch in the western part of Bartow County near Kingston. By the time the trooper arrived, the van had long slipped out of sight.
“She stated that it floated downstream a few feet,” a GSP spokesman said. “And within seconds, it was totally submerged.
The woman’s insurance company is now stuck having to pay for a dive team to find the thing and then tow it out of the river. I’m sure they’re thrilled. They will be when her premiums mysteriously go up, at any rate.
