    Men throwing fireworks leave window up
    July 16, 2004

    SALT LAKE CITY -- Two men planning to throw lighted fireworks from a car were burned when they forgot to roll down the window.


    "They lit a large mortar rocket firework" and were going to throw it out the window, Salt Lake County sheriff's Sgt. John Barker said. "The passenger threw it out the window, but he forgot to roll the window down. It bounced back in his lap."

    Adam Weber, 24, was in fair condition Thursday at the Intermountain Burn Unit at University Hospital with second and third degree burns on his arms, legs and torso.

    "He's going to be in a lot of pain. I don't think it's life-threatening, but he's going to have a hard time. It's going to be a long process to get him healed up," Barker said.

    The driver, Jared Williams, only had minor burns to his back.

    The accident happened about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday.

    The investigation has been turned over to the Unified Fire Authority. An officer told KSL-TV any charges filed likely would be just misdemeanors.

    Sort of reminds me of a guy a few years ago before the Fourth of July. He was in New Hampshire buying fireworks (illegal to buy or even possess in Massachusetts) and drove back across the state line into Massachusetts. The Mass. State Police went after him for it (the store was just over the state line and the troopers could plainly see him walk out of the fireworks store). A few minutes later he is lighting the fuses and throwing them out the window while driving down the highway trying to destroy the evidence.
