The Chevrolet HHR immediately exploded after the driver apparently used a large amount of the aerosol deodorant and flicked his lighter, even though the air conditioning was running and the front windows were down. The explosion blew the windows out, pushed the car doors open and caused the roof to expand, a police spokesperson said.
Thankfully, the flames were not sustained and the driver, who apparently worked for a catering company, was not seriously injured. He was taken to the hospital for potential hearing damage following the explosion.
It’s probably best to keep the body spray for at home use, and not mix fire with aerosol sprays.
