When Things Go Wrong

The intact one was mine and I was the driver. The other one blew up about 75 feet directly in front of me. I backed up quickly and took some photos. Everyone lived, but some severe had injuries.

We got lucky because not of the exploding ordinance hit us.

Very sobering images there, I'm glad to hear they all survived it.

It was a very adrenaline producing event but the upside of it was I saw the guy that came running out on fire , with a compound fractured leg below the knee, I saw my buddy 6 months later still in the Army and walking OK.
It was one of the more minor incidents that I had a front row seat to witness and partake in those incidents and was happy to have survived where many did not. Horrific at the moment but it could have been far worse. The 80 gallons of gasoline is what caused the biggest mess combined with exploding munitions. Two guys badly burned and one fellow, the driver, had two broken front teeth and some hearing damage and the 4th person was scraped and scratch as he was ejected through the top hatch and landed in a bamboo thicket.

Spell check and the iPad messed with the wording a bit but the intent is fairly clear I believe.
