I've been shocked by 12 volts before.
I've been shocked by 40,000 volts from ignition coils before.
Those times left no visual damage
I caught my wedding ring between the lug on a starter and the frame before. That was like any other heat related burn and I lost skin and had blisters.
That looks like a "wound" for lack of a better word, from a garrote.
I have two theories.
Neither one sounds possible.
There was a "boobie" trap under the passenger seat and yanked some sort of hooped wire under the seat and hurt your leg.
there was something wrapped around your leg and hanging out of your closed door.
(haven't you seen someone with their rain coat shut in the door)
and this thing that was wrapped around your leg got caught under a tire while your husband was parking and got pulled tight against your leg.
It finally broke and was the caused of the "bang or pop" sound you heard.
The pulling tight against your leg, and the popping would have probably seems simultaneous.
Feel free to call me an idiot.
I've been around cars all my life.
I've seen people get a finger cut off by a fan blade.
I've seen chunks of hair get pulled out by a drive shaft.
But I have never seen anything like your wound.
