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.

According to 9News:

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.
