    Life is cheap in Mexico. They'll just put up 13 crosses on the side of the highway and go on with business like nothing happened.

    Explosion was very powerful to pick up the car and stick it to the side of the hill.

    I'm surprised the tanks went boom. Was working with LPG company many years, 3 or 4 drivers did the same but never had fire or explosion. Only one trailer was leaking llbit internal valve.

    Yeah i just started hauling propane and the guys were telling me the tankers we use are made out of quarter inch thick steel and takes a lot to penetrate. I figured a massive explosion like this might still be quite possible i guess
