The crash happened at 5:30 a.m. on Columbia Road between Meridian and Linder roads. Eighteen-year-old Tristan Myers was driving when his front-seat passenger, a 16-year-old boy, set Myers' armpit hair on fire. The driver lost control of the Ford Bronco, rolling the vehicle.

A car full of teenagers rolled over after a 16 year-old passenger, a male, lit the driver's armpit hair on fire with a lighter.
