Bloody costume terrifies paramedics after car accident

A woman has given first responders a terrible fright after she accidentally crashed her car while dressed up as Carrie from the popular Stephen King novel.

Sidney Wolfe was on her way home from promoting a musical at a local haunted house when she got into a car accident.

The young woman was covered in fake blood as part of her costume, prompting first responders on the scene of the accident to think she had been seriously injured.


Ms Wolfe took to Twitter on October 28 to share the story, which has since gone viral with more than 286,000 likes and thousands of comments.

“If anyone wants to know how my weekend went I totaled my car while dressed up as Carrie and everyone who was a first responder thought I was dead HAHAHAHA IM SO SORRY,” the West Virginia college student wrote.

“I was promoting Carrie the Musical at a haunted house. At the end of the night, I was too tired to shower and remove my makeup so when I wrecked the first responders saw my blood and freaked.”

She added that the accident was caused by a deer which ran out in front of her car.

“Waiting for my parents to come pick me up from the scene, two more policemen showed up. By this time, I was out of the vehicle and making conversation with the people. The new officer says, “I hate to interrupt but don’t you guys think she needs medical assistance.”

Thankfully, the young woman escaped uninjured.

“I risked my life to promote this musical. Y’all better buy tickets!!!!!” she joked.
