South Point, OH - First responders in Ohio got an early Halloween scare when a bloodied woman emerged from a car crash looking mangled and pale. Turns out Sidney Wolfe, 20, was really just dressed as the title character from “Carrie.”
Still, her fake blood — dripping over a torn prom dress much like the one features in the classic Sissy Spacek/Stephen King horror flick — was ghastly enough to send police into a panic.
“I totaled my car while dressed up as Carrie and everyone who was a first responder thought I was dead HAHAHAHA IM SO SORRY,”wrote Wolfe, a student at West Virginia’s Marshall University, Friday on Twitter.
“Waiting for my parents to come pick me up from the scene, two more policemen showed up,” she continued. “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.”
Wolfe was driving home from a haunted house event, where she came dressed to promote her rolein an upcoming theatrical adaptation of the 1976 film. The scary movie’s plot centered on the horrifying telekinetic revenge of a heckled high school laughingstock — who ends up drenched in pig blood.
Wolfe’s vehicle, however, struck a deer,HuffPost reports, and was totaled.
“The very first responder was a gentleman that pulled over being a Good Samaritan,” Wolfe told the outlet. “You could tell he was horrified.”
“Next came the police officers who were like ‘oh man’ — and kept asking over and over again if I needed medical assistance,” she said. “The second round of cops that came weren’t in on the makeup and said, ‘Are we just gonna ignore that blood is dripping and she needs medical assistance?’”
Wolfe, despite her appearance, walked away from the crash with just a bruise on her leg.
