A snail has been blamed for an horrific car crash which resulted in the death of a teenage girl in England.
A snail, or possibly a slug, left a trail across a circuit board which caused a set of traffic lights on a single-lane bridge in Staffordshire to short circuit.

this is terrible i think it is now time to ban all snail/slug type creatures before the kill anyone else with their disregard for human life, very sad but s"!t happens and always will.
A snail goes into a car dealership he asks the salesmen if they have any big luxury sports cars? The sales men says yes. The snail says, could you please put a big S on the front, a Big S on the side, and a big S on the lisence plate. The salesmen says why? The snail says it's personal I don't want to tell you. So he comes back in a week. With a Big S on the front, a Big S on the side, and a Big S on the license plate. The salesmen asks the mechanic I wonder why he wanted the Big S? The mechanic says I don't know but look at that S-car-go

Just a search of her name in google or the news wires comes up with several stories on it. So it did happen i would say.
Senior police investigator Andy Stevens told an inquest into her death that he had carried out a detailed examination of the scene in Alvecote, near Tamworth, West Mids, and confirmed that the traffic light fault was caused by a trail left by a slug or a snail.
