    That does no look like just diesel fuel. What was he hauling?

    saw it on morning news. didnt understand why burst into flames either. wild guess here; ripped tank then blew tire combo caused explosion. low flash point of diesel plus escape of air pressure from tires??? Anyhoo worst fire I've seen was when HOT hydraulic fluid hit an exhaust manifold. As far as haul looks like flat bed to me, but I digress...

    I saw that said something about the tanks blowing .What cause was a car drift into his path. He had his 7 yr old son with him at the time No major injury just minor Thank God that no one was caught in the cross path of tht truck -n- everybody made it safe
