    "It blew the console cover off of its hinges," Debrecht wrote.

    "I just want to remind you (and your kids) to heed those warnings on products you may be using. Please don't leave aerosol cans (and especially dry shampoo, as this seems to be an issue with some brands) in your car! I am so grateful that no one was hurt."

    Debrecht told KSDK and ABC News that her family first believed something fell from the sky after her husband noticed the damage done to the 2018 Honda Civic hatchback.

    "We were shocked and bewildered. We had no idea what had happened," she told ABC News. "We couldn't believe it had done so much damage. We still can't believe it.

    She told KTVI she was grateful her 19-year-old daughter wasn't in the vehicle when the incident happened.
