Miller Moth Causes Fiery Crash in Colorado Springs [VIDEO]
The miller moths are here! I had one in my kitchen this morning. Then I got in my truck to go to work and I had to shoo a miller moth out before I took off. I thought to myself, “Someday one of these things is going to cause an accident.” That happened this week in Colorado Springs. We have video of the fiery crash scene.
A Colorado Springs teenager says she crashed after being distracted by a miller moth and had to be pulled from her burning vehicle.
The crash happened at the 7800 block of Lexington Drive. The 18-year-old teen says Miller moths distracted her to the point she lost control of her SUV, and crashed right into a tree.
Her SUV ruptured a gas line, but before it was engulfed in flames, two witnesses of the crash rescued the teen.
A Miller moth expert at Colorado State University told 9News the moths will be around for a few more weeks.
Thanks to YouTube for the video of the fiery aftermath of the crash that was caused by a miller moth.
