WALL-OF-FIRE: Tanker Spill Erupts Into Massive Highway Inferno
Transportation Nation Featured News
This story comes from Northern China and is something you simply have to see to believe. It was first reported in The Drive. On February 11, 2018 a passenger car drove through a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) spill which leaked from a tanker truck onto the Beijing-Harbin highway which was a result from an accident earlier that day. What happened next could only be described as a preview of Hell as the LPG ignited into a blazing inferno of terror. The car became engulfed in flames and threatened to incinerate other cars on the highway nearby. If you look closely you can actually see the tanker on its side as it is leaking the dangerous gas.
LPG is commonly sold as propane or butane. Those who have ever experienced what happens when a propane tank is punctured know all-too-well what happens next. The wall of fire in this instance stretched hundreds of yards down the highway as the LPG drained off the road’s surface much like water.
Astoundingly, every one involved in this horror survived.
