A car ran into a light pole Tuesday morning, sending it into a street in Cooper City, and resulting in major front-end damage to the car. 

So, what caused the crash? It turns out the driver saw a spider loose in the car, and things didn’t go well from there, according to a tweet from Mike Jachles, the public information officer for the Broward County Sheriff’s Office.

No other details are available about the crash, according to The Associated Press, but Jachles did mention the spider was “not #itsybitsy.”
