This aircraft with the 467th Bomb Group also suffered damage to its controls and during the crash landing, it ran into a truck, killed a Seabee, and injured 2 men sleeping in a tent before stopping on an embankment.

From bombing of Tokyo. Osaka was firstly bombed during late at night of March 13 to early morning of 14. Hope this helps.
