Fuel Tanker truck Explodes in Massive Fireball on US Highway Creates Major Fire (Photos + Video)

Tanker truck with 12,600 gallons of fuel erupts into massive fire on Michigan highway

A tanker fire on Interstate 94 in Dearborn burned for nearly two hours Wednesday, sending flames and thick black smoke billowing into the air.

A tanker truck carrying more than 12,000 gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel crashed on a Michigan highway .

The AKA Fuels tanker exploded around 11 a.m. in the eastbound lanes. It was extinguished around 1 p.m.

Police haven't said what caused the tanker to leak fuel and catch fire, but Doug Thomas told Local 4 his brother, Ron, was the tanker's driver and got cut off by another car. Thomas said his brother was forced to swerve and hit a wall.


"As he was hitting the wall, the sparks ignited the fuel, I guess. Or, took the hoses off," Doug Thomas said.

Eyewitness Damus Manover said he was driving behind the tanker and saw it make an abrupt move out of the center lane.

"I had to make a quick right turn to duck the debris, and (I was) afraid to get blown up in an explosion," Manover said.
