Two women escaped unharmed when a mattress became stuck under their SUV and caught fire on Interstate 494 in Woodbury, reports the Star Tribune.
According to the Duluth News Tribune, driver Kathleen Rich didn't see the wayward mattress until it was too late to avoid it. She didn't realize the mattress was wedged under the car until other alarmed drivers motioned for her to pull over. After she stopped and exited the SUV, flames shot up from the underside of the car. The car burst into flames moments later.
"When I look at the pictures on the Internet, we are grateful that we are alive. We had just gassed up," Rich said in the Star Tribune article.
