LAFAYETTE, Colo. (CBS4) – Two people were rushed to the hospital after an explosive device went off in their car while they were driving. Some people living in that neighborhood have been forced to leave their homes.

The explosion happened Saturday afternoon in the 300 block of Lodgewood Point in Lafayette.

A bomb squad was still at the scene at 6 p.m. and it’s not clear when the residents will be allowed to return to their homes.

The car appeared to be a Volvo station wagon. The driver and passenger had just left their home and were about a block and a half away when the explosion occurred inside the car. The woman and man in the car got out.

Neighbors told CBS4 the two people looked badly injured. They were taken to Exempla Hospital. Their conditions have not been released.

At one point the bomb squad used a tactical robot to inspect the car.

“We can see from cameras on the robot that there are burn marks inside the car,” a police official said. “At this point we haven’t secured to see if there’s a secondary device.”

CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger found out the home is listed to a woman that has the same name of a woman that was in the news in August of 2010. The woman, Allyson Stone, was involved in a dog attack.

Watch Sallinger’s report in the video below:

The dog attack occurred at the Jasper Animal Hospital in Lafayette where Stone worked as a veterinarian technician. An inch of her upper lip was bitten off by a dog named “Spork.”

Stone was seriously injured then, but what made the story even more eye opening at the time is that the incident was followed by death threats. Those threats came to the veterinary hospital and to Lafayette City Council members.

Stone was criticized in Internet forums for her handling of the dog.

Sallinger spoke with the doctor at the vet clinic who had not heard of the bomb incident. He was quite emotional and said he “can’t believe this is happening again.”

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    At the corner of Calaveras and N. Park Victoria in Milpitas California two corrupt DEA allmost caused the death of an elderly lady while they where harrassing a suspect.
    The elderly lady was crossing the street about 15 yards ahead of the suspect’s car that was going west bound on Calaveras after having just pulled out of the Shell station. One of the DEA in the bus stop near the Shell station tried to gain the attention of the suspect thereby almost causing the car to hit the elderly lady. The other DEA was at the Shell station.
    They have also recently, on several occasions, entered my home while I was not there so that they can get better access to my vehicle and loosen steering linkages, remove wheel weights, tamper with breaks, tamper with transmission linkages, etc… Every time I detect that they have entered my home, my dog looks like he is not feeling well. Why take my insolence out on a dog?
    They are also shooting BB guns at my car while driving. One instance they shot a BB gun at my car in a very busy intersection of highways 680&101 while I was traveling 55+ mph.
    They have been harrassing me for 20 years.
    The DEA is part of the problem and not solution. Apart from being the proxy force for the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and the NSA, they have been a failure since Nixon’s inception. The DEA could benefit from a large buget cut and employee rift to remove the corrupt ones.
