FREEPORT — State police say a driver’s reaction to a spider triggered an accident involving a Jeep that rolled over multiple times before hitting a tree off Interstate 295 in Freeport.

Trooper Marvin Hinkley said Susan Sefcik, 65, of Edgecomb lost control of the vehicle Monday morning while swatting at a spider that dropped in front of her face.

Hinkley said that Sefcik and her husband, George Sefcik, 65, both escaped with minor injuries.

Hinkley said the Jeep hit a horse trailer carrying four horses.

There was only minor damage to the trailer. Traffic was delayed for a half-hour.
