Just another one of the many inconsistencies in the film's storyline.
Nolan used to be so good at relatively realistic details allowing the audience to believe what was happening on the screen could actually happen off the screen.
No Bruce could have simply jumped out of The Bat when it passed under the bridge. That was clearly enough distance for him to clear the blast. Or did they show him in the cockpit after that? I cant remember.
