Crash caused Lynch’s injuries

Not to take anything away from Jessica Lynch and what she endured during Operation Iraqi Freedom, but a new Army report shows that her injuries were sustained as a result of her Humvee being hit by an RPG and crashing, not from fighting off Iraqi soldiers. Her unit was trying to fight its way clear of the ambush, but it is not clear how Pfc. Lynch might have participated in any fighting. Nevertheless, it is good to have the truth after months of speculation and rumor, and Retrophisch(tm) well-wishes to Jessica for continued recovery.
