    A guy I work with told me the other day that his son was hurt when his striker went over an IED, he had a picture of him with a large laceration to the head, and a pic of the vehicle on it's side. Then, they got it back on it's wheels and towed it with another truck, and that one got hit also. Pretty crazy.

    His son was browsing youtube while recovering and found the video of the attack :eek3: . http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCVTSkc7hxU
    I saw the rest of the pictures, and they had places it in a culvert under the road.

    His son just had a cut on the head, one hand is all swollen, and his leg is bruised badly. I guess he pretty much got thrown from it. One other guy was hurt some too. Pretty crazy how it can just toss that thing. I imagine it's damn near impossible to defend from those attacks.

    We never drove over culverts without dismounting and checking/clearing them first...........

    Looks like the striker did a good job keeping the people inside not dead
