First responders see pretty horrifying things in general, but they didn’t expect this. Sidney Wolfe, a student at Marshall University, was driving home from a haunted house event where she was promoting her new role in her school’s adaptation of Carrie.
Her vehicle struck a deer in South Point, Ohio, and first responders were called out.
When they arrived, they didn’t expect Sidney to be in her full Carrie White outfit, complete with the gown, fake blood and tiara. To put it lightly, her appearance likely horrified the first responders.
Wolfe Tweeted about Carrie Costume
The university student posted a picture on Twitter of her vehicle after it struck the deer, and herself in her full costume. The tweet was accompanied with a caption reading “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.”
Sidney added later that the situation continued being absurd. “[W]aiting 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.”
How did First Responders Handle the Situation?
Wolfe spoke to HuffPost about the incident, saying that she could tell the first person who arrived on the scene was just trying to be a good Samaritan but was horrified at the scene. As more people arrived, the situation got sillier.
“Next came the police officers who were like ‘oh man’ and kept asking over and over again if I needed medical assistance,” Wolfe stated. “The second round of cops that came weren’t in on the makeup and said, ‘Are we just gonna ignore that dripping and she needs medical assistance?’”
Wolfe’s vehicle suffered some serious damage in the accident. Thankfully, Wolfe was actually uninjured aside from a mild bruise on her leg. She’ll still be able to play her role as Carrie in the production today, too!
