Sheriff: Burned armpit hair led to Idaho car crash

The Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho — A car full of teenagers crashed in Idaho after authorities say one of the passengers lit the driver’s armpit hair on fire with a lighter.

The Idaho Statesman reports all five young people in the Ford Bronco were hurt in the crash Sunday and had to receive medical treatment. Authorities say two of the passengers were thrown from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries.

The Ada County Sheriff’s Office says the rollover occurred after a 16-year-old boy was goofing off in the front seat and lit 18-year-old Tristian Myers’ armpit hair on fire while Myers was driving.

Deputies cited Myers with inattentive driving, while the 16-year-old was cited for interfering with the driver’s safety. The passenger’s name wasn’t released.

A court date has not yet been set for Myers, who has no listed phone number.
