Watch: Fireworks store goes up in flames after car crashes into it
ยท ยท Nov 29, 2022 ยท

Okay, I didn't realize fireworks were such a big deal down in Florida, but apparently they are. And when you got drive-up service at Phantom Fireworks, something like this is bound to happen:

Yes, this is a story you have to see to believe:

So it looks like this all began when two cars collided at a nearby intersection:

In a release, the Florida Highway Patrol reported the car crashed into the building, sparking fireworks, after colliding with a pickup truck by the intersection. The driver of the truck, a 39-year-old woman from West Melbourne, was not injured and remained on-scene, FHP said.

Hopefully, there's another Phantom Fireworks nearby so all those Floridians can get their fix. A lot of great fireworks wasted here, and you hate to see it.

Unfortunately, the driver of the car that crashed into the building didn't make it.

And that is very sad.


The fire was finally put out overnight, hours after it began at around 4:30 p.m.
