Nashville police are reportedly investigating a July 4 fireworks incident where lit fireworks were thrown into a convertible stopped at a city intersection. A BMW was stopped at the intersection of Church Street at 17th Avenue North Sunday night when someone in a four-door sedan with tinted windows rolled up, lowered a back window and threw the fireworks into the convertible.
Last night in Nashville TN my son was at a traffic light in his convertible when a car pulled up and someone tossed in a large lit firecracker. At first it looks like it will be a dud but then there’s the second explosion! He was burned and the top must be totally replaced. pic.twitter.com/9BbzCzc0ym

The poster, Kathy Kirby from Hendersonville, TN, added “These people should be held accountable. This could have been so much worse. What if it had landed in the floorboard? ” Her son, Colin Kirby, told WKRN-Nashville that bounced off his head and exploded while on top of his convertible cover. Kirby suffered burns to his fingers and is having trouble hearing, but he’ll be OK.
“I really would like Metro to make an example out of this so people don’t do this. I hate to say throw book at them, I hate to see peoples lives ruined over dumb stuff but like I said, what if there were kids in the backseat or a whole family’s car right there? It could have killed people,” Colin told the news channel.
As for the date being shown on the dash cam, before you ask about it, Twitter has an answer for that.
Dash cams, along with every single thing that has a clock in it, aren't preprogrammed to the exact date and time. And if someone is just casually using a dash cam in case shit happens, why would they care about programming the date/time?
