JOLIET - A car was destroyed by fire Friday afternoon while driving through Joliet on Interstate 80.
Fire Lt. Paul Yanak said a woman was driving eastbound about 2:50 p.m. when her electrical systems started flickering.
"She pulled over near Richards Street and the car died. Then she saw smoke coming out from the hood before the car caught fire," Yanak said.
The driver was not injured, but the car was destroyed by the flames, Yanak said.
