Video: Natural gas tanker explodes on motorway
Here's a video from China that shows the moment a natural gas tanker explodes on a busy motorway in China's Hunan Province.
If you're of a nervous disposition then you might want to look away now...
The video above was captured at the weekend outside of a busy motorway tunnel in China. Apparently, the tanker in question was carrying liquefied natural gas when it became involved in a traffic collision at the weekend. It’s not yet known exactly how the collision occurred.
The tanker spilled around 20 tonnes of the highly flammable liquid before the blast occurred. You can clearly see people running from their vehicles in the video above.
Tragically, five people, including three fire-fighters, died in the blast.
