MIAMI — One person was killed and five others injured after a rat caused a car crash in Miami Sunday night, NBCMIAMI.com reports.

The bizarre incident happened just after midnight in the area of North Miami Avenue and 29th Street when the rat caused an explosion that knocked out street lights at the intersection.

Authorities say that a rat atop one of the light poles chewed through one of the fusible links at the top of the pole which caused the street lights to go out. Authorities added that a group of people from a nearby bar went to investigate what caused the explosion and were standing on the sidewalk when two cars collided because the lights were out.
