Aaron Carter Car Explodes

2005010609carter.jpgEntertainment Tonight reports that pop star Aaron Carter had what he calls a “near death experience” last Thursday morning when the car he was driving caught fire on a Florida highway. Seventeen-year-old Carter, was driving to a photoshoot when a mattress fell off the truck that he was following. He was unable to avoid the mattress so he drove his Cadillac Escalade over it, causing the car to ignite. After pulling over to the side of the road the vehicle exploded, with Carter narrowly escaping with only minor injuries. I’d comment that it’s a shame Aaron made it out, but I’m more surprised that Escalades can’t seem to make it over mattresses without exploding. Looks like 90% of the hip-hop population have invested in some quality SUV’s.
