Vincent Bingham was driving in Cincinnati Monday just minding his own business when a cicada got right up in his face and smacked his right in his sunshine causing him to crash his car into a utility pole.
“I was driving, and I’m guessing it was a cicada flew in and smacked me right in the face,” Bingham told an officer at the scene of the crash in bodycam footage released by the Cincinnati Police Department.
Witnesses of the crash told the responding officer that Bingham wasn’t swerving or speeding until he randomly jerked the wheel, causing him to total his car.
The officer said he’s “tempted to believe” Bingham because he had a cicada stuck in the console of his car at the time.
Trillions of Brood X cicadas are swarming across parts of the eastern United States and the Midwest for the first time in 17 years.
Just recently an army of Cicadas launched an attack on President Biden’s Press plane causing hours of delay.
