A young woman gave first responders quite a fright after her car hit a deer.
Sidney Wolfe, a college student in West Virginia, was dressed up as Stephen King's infamous character, Carrie. She was at a haunted house in the full costume, complete with fake blood to promote a production of “Carrie: The Musical."
She was still in character on her way home when she hit a deer with her car.
“First a good Samaritan pulled over and he saw me, and he was like, ‘Oh my gosh, stay there, we got you,’” she recalled to Inside Edition. “All my airbags were deployed and I couldn't get out, and I was trying to say, no, no it's makeup, it's fake. Here come three ambulances, four fire trucks.”
The makeup she had on as the iconic character may have thrown the first responders for a loop.
“They kept asking over and over again, ‘Are you sure you don't need medical assistance? Are you sure you don't need medical assistance?’ And I said, ‘No, I’m fine.' One of them said, ‘Ma'am, I’m sorry this blood looks so real, we don't know what's real and what's fake.’ When it first happened, I was so in shock, I myself was like, ‘Um, what's real? What's not real? I don't know!’” she recalled.
Thankfully, she suffered only some minor bruising in the accident.
While the incident was scary, she is seeing the bright side, saying, “It was just a happy, fun Halloween story.”
