Fire retardant vs Car

What happens if we stay under a retardant dropping ?

This is an awareness-raising video about the dangers of Retardant Dropping by the California Department of Forests and Fire Protection. For the video, a Grumman S-2 AirTanker water bomber dropped 4 tonnes (9000 lbs) at low altitude on a Ford SUV.
The result is not beautiful to see. So imagine with a larger bomber (VLAT) capable of releasing 76 tons of water (170000 pounds). Normally, the drops are made at a higher altitude to create a rain effect. But sometimes pilots can not do otherwise.
