SHERMAN, Tex. -- An SUV was said to have become airborne about 40 feet before catching fire in Sherman Tuesday night.

It happened in the 3600 block of Texoma Parkway just before 10:30 p.m.

Police say witnesses saw the car hit a culvert, spun in the air, hit another culvert, then hit a mailbox before it caught on fire.

Fire crews were able to extinguish the flames.

One man was flown by helicopter to Parkland Hospital in Dallas with non-life threatening injuries.

No word yet as to what exactly caused that accident.

    Maybe the UFO's in Texas were trying to beam up the SUV and dropped it a few times before zapping it with a lazer which caused the fire. I'm just thinking outside the box while speculating. Well...it could happen.

    Mom, I'd say thats a very well built vehicle, if it can fly 40 feet through the air, hit two culverts and a mail box before catching fire and the driver had only "non-life threatening injuries" this isn't a Pinto!

    Well, Anonymous if it was non threating I really don't think this person had a heart attack and I believe you are the one that is speculating

    Or you could say on good faith that alchohol was the major factor.

    If a specific reason is not known nothing should be said. Get a life and quit being stupid.
