Doofus Of The Day #787

Courtesy of a link at Wirecutter's place, today's award goes to a 16-year-old teen in Boise, Idaho.

A car full of teenagers crashed in Idaho after one of the passengers lit the driver's armpit hair on fire with a lighter, authorities said Wednesday.

All five young people in the Ford Bronco were hurt in the crash Sunday and received medical treatment, the Ada County Sheriff's Office said.

Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries.

There's more at the link.

Dare I guess that apart from teenage stupidity (as my sister says, they think they're "invincible, invulnerable and infertile"), alcohol might have been involved?

Dang, I was hoping it would escape national attention, happening in my county.
