Electrician killed by booby trapped car in Miami

A Florida electrician was killed Friday when a car he was working on crashed into a tree and burst into flames.

The body of 32-year-old Andrew Miller was discovered by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper shortly after 8 p.m. on a Florida interstate north of Miami.

His death was ruled a homicide.

The car, which was stopped in the middle of a busy highway, was engulfed in flames when it struck the tree.

The fire was out by 9:30 p.b.m., and police said the driver was arrested.

The trooper said the fire was caused by a wiring harness and a battery inside the car.

Investigators said the car belonged to the electrician who was working at the scene, and that he was a father of four.

They also said they did not know if the driver or anyone else was injured.

Miller was a resident of Miami Beach, but had worked at a number of auto plants and other auto repair shops in the city.

The car was driven from the home he shared with his wife and two children to a mechanic’s office in North Miami.
