Hey I saw that this am around 7:40 am when I was coming out of Brueggers bagels. Their appeared to be like a red balloon type thing that floated into the air. The man, who was white, small to medium build was holding his head by his ears as he stumbled away from the red vehicle. When I left I saw that doors where open on the passenger and drivers side of the vehicle. But during the explosion the front passenger door was ajar. It was a really loud bang, similar to a shut gun being fired!
