What turned out to be more than a little car trouble left three girls stranded on their way to prom last weekend.
Two Lakeshore Catholic High School students, along with a friend, were headed to their much anticipated party, when the car they were in began smoking. High school student Brandee Videcak, 18, had borrowed her sister’s 1987 Grand Prix to drive fellow student Ashley Fisher, 17, and former Lakeshore Catholic student Kristian DeCicco, 18, to their prom in Niagara Falls.
While driving Videcak said the car stalled and smoke started to pour out from under the hood. When Videcak popped the hood to investigate she saw flames.
“I turned off the ignition and all of a sudden smoke just engulfed the whole hood, like what is happening? I heard the pop, I saw some flames and that’s when I saw all the flames underneath the car and I’m watching the metal melt onto the road” Videcak said.
