"Alas, Poor Yorick"

Drowning in Gas
The blind guys are escaping in a hidden panel at the bottom of a gasoline truck. Unfortunately, there's a leak. So now they're drowning in gasoline, fighting to keep their heads above the surface. But the driver makes it to the airport, and is rolling toward escape, when ... she drives right into a plane. The whole thing explodes into a huge fireball.
