  • Woman uses lighter to check gasoline level, blows up car

    SOURCE: http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/1...hter29.article

    A Joliet woman suffered second-degree burns Tuesday night after she used a cigarette lighter to help her see how much gas was in a can she was been filling.

    The incident happened at a 7-Eleven gas station at 1609 E. Cass about 10:30 p.m., police said.

    The 27-year-old woman "was filling up a gas can, which was sitting on the passenger seat of the car. [She] then used a lighter to . . . observe how full the can was," police said.

    The flame ignited the gas, and the can exploded, setting the car's interior aflame.

    Apparently afraid that the fire would spread to the gas pump she had been using, the woman began to push the burning car.

    The car was about five feet from the gas pumps and engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

    The woman was treated at the scene for second-degree burns to her right wrist and right thigh before being taken to Silver Cross Hospital. Her injuries were serious but not life-threatening.

      We need to have an IQ test to use certain machines. That way if you have the IQ of an orange; you can't use the gas pump.

        I find it disturbing how more and more the meaning of the term "common sense" does not apply to many individuals.
        Dispatch: "All units be advised, he's on foot in a red dodge pick up truck."
        Me: "Ummm, control..."

          Crazy story but on the same token, don't they have an editor to proof read these stories before they are published on the internet?

                    That is about what I'd expect from a person from an area of town where the media can't write properly.

                            Does this story remind you of someone else??????

                              We had a man here in the county, pumping his gas at a little mom and pop store. His "friend" comes up and flicks his lighter at him...you know...enough to make a spark. Victim goes up in flame. He scorched his back from shoulder to butt.

                              Lettme tell you...you come up to me and do that, we ain't friends. I don't like you anymore and when my skin grafts heal, it's your ***.
