A SEAT driver in the UK had a lucky escape when the car he was in exploded over the weekend.
The Metro reports that the driver walked away from the car with minor injuries after lighting a cigarette in a cabin filled with an aerosol air freshener.
Apparently the driver was seen spraying aerosol in the car before lighting up cigarette 😦

The car was stationary at the time and it is believed that the motorist did not ventilate the vehicle properly before getting his nicotine fix.
A police statement said that the fumes blew out the car windscreen along with the windows of nearby businesses.
Police have also urged motorists to follow guidelines when spraying aerosols inside a vehicle.
