Metro Detroit I-75 Explosion Caught On Tape As It Happened

Detroit ABC affiliate WXYZ managed to grab exclusive video from a gas station on the corner of the I-75 service drive and Nine Mile Rd. Watch as the tanker explodes and cars continue through the flames.


From our earlier report:

The accident occured around 8:15 PM when the tanker reportedly got tangled up with a car and another semi truck. The tanker ended up across the freeway underneath the 9 Mile road over pass where it exploded, sending a massive column of black smoke skyward. The fire went on for hours and, eventually, the newly finished bridge overhead collapsed. Amazingly, nobody was seriously injured in the incident.
