Where was Rhodey?

In Iron Man (2008), when the convoy Tony was in was attacked, where was Rhodey and why didn't he die and/or help during the attack? It looked like there were 3 vehicles in Tony's convoy when they were attacked and everyone except Tony died (assuming this since the bad guys were able to get Tony after he was injured).

Rhodey was going to ride with Tony, but Tony said, "this is the fun-vee. the hum-drum-vee is back there" and did not let him ride along. This, to me, makes it appear as if Rhodey was going to the same location as Tony, so where was he?

Best Answer

While the actual dialogue itself certainly sounds like Rhodey is trying to hitch a ride, I don't get that impression from the final version of the scene.

Rhodey comes up to the side of the humvee, where Tony is already set to leave, but he looks like he has something to say to Tony (maybe congratulations?), not like he's ready to leave too.

It's likely that Tony is done with his part at that location, and is riding back to base ahead of everyone else.
