Two people in China had to be taken to the hospital with serious burns after a gas truck overturned and burst into flames on an expressway.
CCTV reports a truck loaded with liquefied natural gas flipped over on the Beijing-Harbin expressway Sunday. Gas leaked from the vehicle and ignited surrounding cars, sending a fireball down the highway.
Video of the incident showed just how quickly the fire spread down the expressway, while also igniting trees along the road. The driver who filmed the video was able to escape the scene without being injured.
The two people inside the truck were taken to the hospital to be treated for their burns.
