An Indiana mom found a spider on her shoulder at exactly the wrong time—while she was backing out of her driveway on Friday. Authorities say Angela Kipp of Syracuse jumped out of her Dodge Avenger while it was still in gear ... and her 9-year-old son was in the back seat. The boy climbed into the front seat to try and stop the car, but accidentally pressed the gas instead of the brakes, WANE reports.

The car continued in reverse and hit a passing school bus; no children were inside at the time and the driver of the school bus was uninjured. The boy, however, suffered minor head injuries and was transported to the hospital in stable condition, FOX 59 reports. (More car accident stories.)
