Woman survives car blast near home

A Schaumburg woman is lucky to be alive, law enforcement officials said, after an explosive device placed inside her car went off Friday morning when she opened the door.

The 20-year-old woman was about to drive to work when the device exploded in her red Chevy Cavalier, police said.

She was treated at the scene for minor injuries, mostly cuts to her forehead from flying glass.

Schaumburg Police Sgt. Paul Rizzo said detectives are interviewing the victim's 26-year-old ex-boyfriend, who has an active order of protection against him.

The blast blew out the back window of the woman's car, which was parked on Sky Water and Thoreau Drives, next to the Walden Condominiums.

Witnesses said the explosion sounded like an M-80.

Kristen Tywan, 18, who lives with the victim, said she heard a loud boom and ran out of the condo to find her friend shaken up and bleeding.

Tywan said her brother is engaged to the victim. She also said the ex-boyfriend has stalked the victim and popped her friend's car tires a few months ago.

Throughout the day Friday, investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, the Cook County Bomb Squad and Schaumburg police canvassed the area with bomb-sniffing dogs looking for evidence and witnesses.

Detectives studied the driver's side door of the vehicle for clues.

ATF officials said the woman was "very lucky" to be alive. The device was so powerful that shrapnel was found 300 feet from the car, said ATF spokesman Tom Ahern.

The car had not been moved in a week, he said.

Investigators have yet to determine what type of device was used and whether it was homemade or produced commercially. The evidence has been shipped off to ATF's national laboratory in Maryland.

"It fragmented into many, many pieces," Ahern said. "Until the laboratory processes it, we won't know what components it's made up of."

Somebody [B]REALLY[/B] didn't like her very much.  Glad she survived - hope they nail the perp.

How does one warrant this type of "attention" anyway?  Question detectives will have to answer...

Ever think about relocating?

Wow the bomb was so powerful it sent shrapnel 300 feet away. It sounded like an M-80? Something does not jive here. An M-80 ain't that loud folks. A bomb is. Luckily, it sounds like whomever planted the bomb did not know what they were doing.

Yes, you can in your grocers "EXPLOSIVES" section. That's where McVeigh got his.  Make sure you test it in your living room first, OK?

What do you want from people, 99% dont know anything about anything other than what they do day in day out (and most not even that).  They are brain washed by movies and the news media.
