Burned Armpit Hair Caused a Car Crash in Idaho
In life, there are some things that you simply don’t do. Riding in a car and lighting the driver’s armpit hair on fire just about tops that list. But that’s exactly what happened last Sunday morning in southeast Boise, Idaho, and it ended with a crash. According to the Associated Press, a Ford Bronco, driven by 18-year-old Tristian Myers, flipped at high speed after a 16-year-old passenger lit Myers’ armpit hair on fire.

All five of the vehicle’s teenage occupants received injuries during the accident, though luckily none are believed to be life threatening. Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the Ford, and Ada County Sheriff’s deputies have noted that it appeared none of the teens were wearing seat belts.
The poor Bronco, however, doesn’t look like it survived the ordeal. The third-gen suffers from some severe alignment issues in the wake of the crash, a mangled headlight and grille, as well as a crumpled hood, roof and doors. Restoration impossible.
The sheriff’s department believes speed to be a contributing factor and has since cited Myers with inattentive driving and the 16-year-old passenger for interfering with the driver’s safety. A word to the wise – buckle up and don’t be stupid.
