Woman Refuses To Drive For A Week After Finding Huge Spider Hiding In Her Door Handle

A woman had the fright of her life when she discovered a huge spider hiding in the door handle of her car in New South Wales, Australia. Yikes!

The woman revealed she is too afraid to drive her car after the hairy, eight-legged creature decided to make her car it's new home.

Christine Jones took the pictures of the hidden spider moments before she opened her car's door, narrowly avoiding an up close and personal encounter with the arachnid.

She posted the pictures on an Australian Spider Identification Page on Facebook, revealing that at first she thought the strange thing hiding beneath the door handle of her car was "hairy caterpillars at first", but she soon realised it was one large spider.
