10 people in crash involving spider released from hospital

GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — Officials say 10 of 11 people injured in a car crash in Great Bend that involved a spider have been released from the hospital.

Great Bend Regional Hospital chief operating officer Adina Gregory said Monday that one of the injured people stayed at the hospital overnight and is in stable condition.

Kansas Highway Patrol says a 17-year-old girl was driving along U.S Route 56 Sunday when she noticed a spider on her lap. Authorities say she let go of the steering wheel to swat at it and her vehicle crossed the center lane, colliding with a car before bouncing off and striking a second car.

The Hutchinson News reports three people in the first car and five people in the second vehicle were taken to the hospital, as well as the 17-year-old driver.
