Yeah, noone hurt.

One weird thing is about five feet from it, there is a pool of aluminum, obviously hardened, but I couldn't figure out what it was. It was completely shapeless. You can barely see it on the left edge of the first pic.

It is about 50 yards off the road. I drove by right after they put it out and didn't even see it. I had no idea why there were so many people and a fire truck on the edge of our land. I thought there was an accident of some sort.

Could the puddle have been from when the air released from the tire and blew molten wheel material out?? Got any physicists here that can speculate???

The wheels didn't melt on that side, though. The wind kept one side cooler. ANd I can't go back to investigate, they hauled it off.

Have you priced scrap metal lately? With the Chinese economy taking off, it'* thru the roof!!
Scrap dealers are buying up all the scap metal they can to sell to them.
It'* a fact.

The war really isn't over yet.....

I think with a bit of compound and a polisher they could have buffed it out and it would have been good as new. LMFAO.
