MINI Burns On Florida Interstate

MINI owner Mariann Nelson saw something no driver wants to spot while commuting earlier this morning.

After spending a bit of time slowly clicking Northern, Florida miles off, she came across this poor MINI burt to a crisp on the shoulder.

Reports from News 4 Jax say the MINI was occupied by a mother and her two daughters when they smelled smoke and heard a clicking sound. They quickly pulled over, and got out before the car erupted in flames.

“I think the poor fireman heard me scream through my window before I took the pics.” Nelson told That MINI Show. She went on to tell us that her co-workers joked, asking if she laid flowers in remembrance. We’re sure at least one other MINIac thought about it.

That MINI Show hates to share a MINI loss, but we know others feel just as shocked. If you have any details about the incident to share, please let us know in the comments below, or via the Contact Form. You’re also welcome to leave a message of condolence if you so choose.
