LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. -- Authorities in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., said a chemical reaction between fireworks and mixing compounds being transported in a car caused an explosion that fatally injured a California man.

Lake Havasu City Fire Marshal Chip Shilosky said the explosion occurred as 59-year-old Randy Feldman of Menlo Park and another man were driving on State Route 95 in Lake Havasu City on Feb. 12.

Feldman was severely burned by a secondary explosion of fireworks in the car's trunk, and he died Feb. 27 at a hospital in Las Vegas.

According to the Today's News-Herald, Feldman was in Lake Havasu City for a Western Pyrotechnics Association event.
