TROY, Mich. - A large fuel tanker ran into a concrete barrier and exploded along a Michigan highway.
The Troy Fire Department and police are investigating the accident, which happened at 1:15 p.m. July 12 on I-75.
The video shows the tanker truck carrying over 14,000 gallons of gasoline and diesel veering into a concrete barrier across the three-lane highway. The truck struck the center wall of the median and immediately burst into flames.
