    A Texas man’s attempt at a fiery suicide Tuesday morning backfired big time — injuring two police officers, leaving the man with serious burns and setting him up for a likely charge of felony arson.

    The Austin man, who hasn’t been identified, called police in the early morning and said he planned on committing suicide by setting himself on fire inside his car, according to KVUE. Officers arrived at a Stassney Food Mart off Interstate 35 around 2 a.m. to see him calmly wandering outside his car in the parking lot.

    The officers asked him to come over, but instead he rushed into his car and, as police tried to rescue him, set himself ablaze and caused the car to explode — all of which was captured in a dramatic dash cam video.

    The explosion knocked over one officer and blew the man out of his car — until he climbed back inside, only to eject himself moments later, screaming in agony while convulsing until he collapsed as officers apprehended him.

    A suicidal Texas man injured himself and two police officers when he set himself on fire in his, causing an explosion in a parking lot.
    The two officers suffered only minor burns to the arms, and both were released later on Tuesday, but the man remains in the hospital with serious burns, the Austin Statesman reported.

    Police told the paper he is probably going to face charges for first-degree felony arson, since his botched blaze of glory injured others.

    It remains unclear how he started the fire, but investigators believe he likely had doused himself in gasoline.

    The man appears to be calm when officers arrive, as seen in dash cam footage.

    There are so many different forms of suicide. Why choose incineration?
