I read the caption to this photo with interest - if I was a crash-site investigator I might conclude that there was too-little collateral damage to support the idea of damage caused to the vehicle by an aerial bomb detonation. The adjacent tree(s) and telegraph pole are unmolested (apart from the distressed tree next to the upturned Destroyer). I note as well that there are all sorts of other vehicles in the background that are off-road - and I suspect all have been moved aside to allow a free-traffic flow.
