Brad KollarClearfield Township, PA – Investigators say Brad Kollar, the 40-year-old man who blew himself to Kingdom Come, along with another man’s house, did so as an act of revenge.

On Tuesday, Kollar strapped bombs to his chest and drove a truck full of explosives to the home of William Shaner. The resulting explosion killed Kollar, injured Shaner and one of his sons, and pretty much wiped Shaner’s house off the map.

Police initially thought the explosion was the result of a meth lab going up in smoke, but it was later determined Kollar committed suicide by turning suicide bomber and blew himself up outside Shaner’s home. The motive was possibly revenge, as Kollar believed Shaner alerted police to the chop shop and meth lab he and his father had on their property.

Kollar and his father, John Andrew Kollar, were arrested by state police last year after numerous stolen vehicles, in addition to explosives and meth-related chemicals, were found on the family’s property. Charged with operating a chop shop, Kollar was facing more than 10 years in prison. He was supposed to be in court for his sentencing on the morning of the blast, but blew it off, apparently, to blow himself up – along with Shaner.

While Kollar was successful in his attempt at killing himself, he wasn’t as lucky with Shaner. Neighbors said the Shaner family had three children. At the time of the blast, two of the youngest children had already been picked up by their school bus and Shaner’s wife was already at work. William Shaner was in bed when the house was decimated and his teenage son, Ryan Shaner, was brushing his teeth.

Witnesses describe seeing Ryan dragging his father from the rubble of their home after the explosion rocked the neighborhood, sending debris on both sides of the road. They were both rushed to the hospital were Ryan was treated for minor cuts and scrapes. His father underwent surgery and suffered a skull fracture, six fractured ribs, and two fractured vertebrae. But for a man who was sleeping in a home that was flattened by a suicide bomber, he came out pretty lucky.

Bradley Kollar’s mental status had been a concern for authorities for some time and court records show the DA’s office tried to have Kollar’s bail revoked after receiving reports that he was contemplating suicide and may have access to explosives. Obviously, they were not successful.

    Sounds like a suicide bomber FAIL to me. Glad the victims sound like they are going to make it and mom and the other kids weren’t in the house at the time!

    And the gene pool just got a little bit cleaner…

    It sounds harsh, but I’m glad he’s dead and didn’t manage to kill his intended target. It sucks that they’re homeless now, though.
