He killed himself being somewhere he shouldn't be and doing something he shouldn't be doing.

"When they arrived, the suspect told the cabbie to give him his money. Then he hit the driver on the head, pulled out a flammable liquid and attempted to douse the driver with it. When he tried to light liquid, he wound up setting himself on fire and the car burst into flames.

Just as he felt the liquid igniting, the cab driver was able to get out of the car with only minor injuries. The would-be robber, however, wasn’t as lucky."

YEAH! The bad guy got torched and the law abiding citizen is fine.

Now I wish someone could set all the ADS and VIDEOS Topix posts on fire and make them go away permanently.....

You know what the saying is, "you play with fire, you get burned." Glad the driver escaped unharmed.
