When the DeLorean travels through time in “Back to the Future”, it leaves flaming tire tracks behind it. That might make you think DeLoreans can handle fire.

Well . . . nope. Not even close.

A guy named Daryl Kemsley in Orem, Utah has a rare, classic DeLorean, just like the one from “Back to the Future”. And he was driving it on Saturday when someone rear-ended him.

The back of the car immediately burst into flames.

He pulled into a Rite Aid parking lot and ran inside to ask for their fire extinguisher, but they wouldn’t give it to him. And . . . um . . . I guess he didn’t think to buy one?

The DeLorean wound up burning so badly it’s a total loss.
