Early Wednesday morning, a man and a woman were traveling south on Highway 73 near Neillsville when a bomb went off in their car. A witness traveling about five car lengths behind was shocked.

"I was behind the car about five car lengths all the sudden there was blue smoke, glass, flying and I thought maybe it was a deer,"" witness Pam Oesteich says.

Officials arrived at the scene and the Fort McCoy bomb squad discovered a second bomb, that bomb did not detonate. The Clark County Sheriff's Department says the couple was unaware that they were traveling with the bombs. Officials are still investigating.

The FBI says this incident is not linked to the recent letters sent to Gov. Jim Doyle that stated there were land mines planted throughout the state.
