My buddy that heard it blow up said from what couple guys said he got back in there & got into the heavy grass clumps & it turned on it's side & apparently the muffler sparked the grass.. guess he got it turned back right side up but it was too late..& then the fuel tank blew up!

What happened here the guy what is driving like an asshole I seen the video of the passenger recorded it was his fault and could’ve been prevented period Maybe if any y’all know Kerry Waddle or Spud grounds they might show you the video I’ve seen off their page on Facebook
