The Ada County Sheriff’s Department responded about 5:30 a.m. Sunday to a rollover crash near Boise, Idaho that occurred after a 16-year-old boy tried to light 18-year-old Tristian Myers’ armpit hair on fire while Myers was driving.

Five teens in the Ford Bronco were injured in the crash Sunday and received medical treatment. Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were ejected from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries.
Deputies cited Myers with inattentive driving, while the 16-year-old was cited for interfering with the driver’s safety.
None of the teens was wearing a seatbelt, and there was evidence Myers was driving at an excessive speed.
