Tires looked newer too.

Dang!

My 15 year old was inflating and blew out a tire on the Polaris ATV and his ears rang for 2 days.  This is a little more severe. I wonder if it wasn't completely on the bead.

Looked like the inner sidewall ripped apart. I'm not sure at all what all the dust is. If it was a dry powder, it would not flow through the inside of the tire like liquid Calcium Chloride does. The tube would have to be filled pretty close to completely full otherwise the tire would be badly out of balance.  I have heard of tractor pullers filling tires with powdered lead, it would act like a liquid by over-stressing the tire casing as you drove over something.

And I agree, girl on that fender reacted quickly grabbing hold of the driver. The fender was pretty badly tore up.

Glad everybody was safe!

They are definitely noisy when that happens. Had a road grader Tire blow up in my face once. I was helping a buddy change it. He had mud in his teeth and we were both bloody but ok. Ever since I’ve been more careful to wear safety glasses when changing or messing with tires at all. They were very lucky it wasn’t worse.

It's, liquid, watch as it hits the pavement. I think the blast bent the fender and threw her into the driver.
