    Looks to me like the safety valve blew on one of the tanks and securement was an issue.

    I don't think they worry too much about securement over there

    IF there was "securement" it went away.
    Looked like a couple of scooter riders as well car occupants possibly injured.

    Definitely not. I seen so many loads of rebar on a flatbed going through Doha,Qatar with nothing but gravity holding them in place. They just don’t care.

    People here mostly don't care either, therefore a 500 page DOT book of regulations.
