Driver Victim Of Spontaneous Combustion

An update to THIS story.

The AP is reporting:

A car that was stopped after a pursuit on a mountainous highway near San Diego exploded and burned Thursday, killing the driver and injuring a Border Patrol agent, authorities said.

There is no evidence that the driver was involved in smuggling migrants, drugs or weapons, said Border Patrol spokesman Steven Pitts.

Whew! Thank goodness! When you hear of cars exploding, you automatically think of terrorism and car bombs and suicide murderers. I'm so happy this appears to be a simple case of spontaneous combustion.

In fact, the investigation seems to be focusing on the fact that, ten years ago, smugglers often drove on the wrong side of the highway to avoid border patrol checkpoints.

America is safe again.
