Season 9 American Idol finalist Paige Miles had to climb out of the window of her car after it burst into flames.

Miles, who came in 11th place on the Fox hit last season, was driving home from a Florida rehearsal Tuesday night when her GMC Envoy went up in smoke.

"The electric shut down, the car doors wouldn't open, i jumped out my window and watched my mother's Envoy blaze," she wrote on her Facebook page.

She said the accident left her crying and shaking, but she wasn't seriously injured.
