Keyless remote triggers car explosion
January 29, 2013 (STONEHAM, Mass.) (WLS) -- A woman in Massachusetts tried to unlock her car trunk using a keyless remote... and the car exploded.
It happened in the parking lot of a supermarket.
The blast destroyed the woman's Honda Civic and sent people running to the parking lot to see what had happened.
A bomb squad responded and determined the woman's boyfriend put welding equipment in the trunk. The keyless remote set off a tiny electrical charge that caused it to blow up.
No one was hurt.
