Car Explodes After Man Uses Body Spray, Lights Cigarette

Police in Maryland say a car blew up when a man inside lit a cigarette after spritzing himself with an aerosol body spray. The cigarette-and-spray combination caused "a sudden and violent expansion of the air molecules'' in the car Thursday, creating a boom that pushed the roof up, shattered the front window and blew the doors open, Baltimore County police spokeswoman Jennifer Peach told The Baltimore Sun.
