Well, now. I don’t suppose this is a scenario our gun-humping legislators considered when they passed guns-in-cars last year:
Emergency workers at a car crash on Interstate 95 Thursday had to contend with exploding bullets as fire ignited 40 rounds of ammunition in one car.
“The car was fully engulfed and it had exploded already,” Vanadestine said. “While I’m there trying to give first aid and help them I hear this popping.” The driver of the Honda told him he had two loaded handguns, a .40-caliber and a .380, and ammunition in the car.
“All that ammo started to explode and go all over that place. I could see it. The car was absolutely destroyed,” Vanadestine said.
Vanadestine ran to his cruiser and positioned it in front of the people who had been in the car.
“I couldn’t move them. I thought we were going to get hit with rounds,” he said. “For five to 10 minutes those rounds were popping off in that car.” None of the rounds hit the cruiser.
Firefighters had to stay back until the rounds stopped going off.
The 20-year-old driver of the car had a concealed-carry permit, so no charges were filed related to the guns and ammo.
Great, just what first responders need to deal with.
