(Scroll down for video) A teenager lost control of her car after she freaked out when a spider landed on top of her.
The 18-year-old woman of Australia, arrived at the Bayview Boat Ramp in Sydney, at 7:00 a.m.
Before she was able to fully stop the car, she saw a huge spider. She jumped out of the vehicle while applying the handbrake only half way.
The woman then began “dancing” around to get the giant huntsman spider off of her, according to witnesses.
As she focused on getting the spider away from her body, the car rolled off the ramp and into the water.
The $20,000 Volkswagen was completely submerged in the water and needed to be towed back to shore.
Good Samaritan Stuart Cooper, who witnessed the incident, came to her aid. He said that he was worried about other people being inside the car that was floating down the river.
When he learned that the car was empty, Cooper spoke with the teenage driver who was crying and shaken up from the incident.
When her mother arrived, she calmed her daughter down by saying: “Don’t worry about the car, thank God that you are ok.”
