A bloke has driven his car into a NSW lake after becoming startled by a spider.
As reported by the Camden Courier, the driver noticed a huntsman inside his car before careening it into Lake Gracie - near Port Macquarie.
“I meant to hit the brake but instead I accidentally hit the accelerator,” said the driver.
Surprised at how deep the water was, the driver was forced to escape the vehicle through his window before it sank.
There were no other passengers in the vehicle and the driver went to hospital with minor injuries.
