Driver Distracted By Spider in Vehicle, Crashes in Leelanau County

Something creepy and crawl is blamed for a car crash that left one person with minor injuries.

The crash happened on South Good Harbor Trail near East Gatzke Road in Centerville Township in Leelanau County.

Police arrived on scene to find a 2005 GMC Envoy in the ditch.

In the car, a man and female passenger, both from Grawn, say they were distracted by a spider on the visor above the driver’s head.

After trying to deal with the arachnid, the driver veered off the road into the ditch and some brush.

The driver was uninjured, but the women had a minor injury on her wrist.
