Tanker Truck Explosion!












There was a tanker truck that crashed and exploded in our town yesterday. The man driving the truck was killed. The black marks on the rock cliffs around the highway are huge! You can see them in the first picture. The tank was full of diesel fuel so they had to clean it up with foam which you can see in the last picture. Such a sad and crazy incident! It is a little wierd to drive on that road by that section now. All the blackness there just leaves you speechless. It is just amazing to see the chunks of cement missing from the overpass (which they have closed for now!). You can see the missing chunks in the third picture. Crazy stuff!!!

Such a tragic accident...and yes, it feels a little weird to drive that section of the highway.

Great pictures, yes! But cool to see such excitement? I don't think so! Someone lost their life!!!
