ARIZONA - You hear about car bombs overseas, but on Wednesday Mohave County Sheriff’s deputies came across an attempted car bombing in Western Arizona.

Mohave County Sheriff's deputies say the car was packed with explosives, including propane bottles and shotgun shells.

A Washington state man drove it over a cliff near the town of Oatman.

Investigators say he was trying to kill himself, but the bomb didn't go off and the man lived.

He's now in jail, charged with disorderly conduct involving a dangerous instrument.
