Hot Wheels

Adrian Rendon, 37, was driving in San Antonio, Texas, when he lit a cigarette. The can of gasoline on the seat next to him burst into flames. He lost control, and then rolled backwards into another car entering the highway. By the time fire crews arrived, the fire was out — it had consumed all the oxygen in the closed car. Rendon was flown to a burn center in critical condition. (RC/San Antonio Express-News) ...It sounds like he’s been in “critical condition” for about 37 years.
