A tanker truck carrying around 8,000 gallons of gasoline overturned and exploded on a highway in Pennsauken, N.J. Monday morning,
CBS Philly reports. The driver escaped with minor injuries.
According to CBS Philly, the Delaware River Port Authority said the fire was extinguished in about 30 minutes. 200 gallons of gas reportedly remained, which were moved to another tanker.
CBS has aerial footage of the blaze:
The crash happened around 11 a.m. Monday morning. Pennsauken Police Captain Michael Probasco told NBC10 that the driver, Brian Ervin, lost control of the truck while navigating a ramp.
"I heard a big bang and felt it," Bob Ried, who was driving near the truck when it exploded,
told CBS Philly. "I didn't see the truck… all I saw was flames. It felt like a bomb went off."
"It was pretty crazy," he said.
