“The wall of flame”: in China, a lorry with a liquefied gas caught fire on the track

In Hebei Province in northern China , a truck carrying liquefied natural gas caught fire on the Beijing-Harbin highway . At first the truck lost control and turned over, while its tank was damaged and the fuel substance spilled along the road.

On the frames taken on the DVR, it is clear how the driver of a blue car drove into a puddle of gas, after which an explosion occurred. The flame spread to tens of meters and spread over another machine.

According to local media, the truck driver received burns of 50% of the body. The owner of the blue car got into hospital with burns of 10% of the body. The remaining participants of the incident got off with minor injuries. The firemen quickly managed to cope with the fire, but three cars were completely burnt.
