Default Tanker explosion

For the third time in past year another tanker truck crash and exploded on Interstate 75 near my house. Unfortunately this accident had a fatality. The article says I75 at Outer Drive, it was about 1.5 miles further down 75 at Dearborn Ave. http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/15018885/detail.html

wow, we had a tanker flip and spill all over yesterday, luckily there was no explosion and no fatalities but it spilled a ton of gas into our drains.

Lucky for you all. If this would have happen 300 yds. back, instead of that house catching fire, it would have been my church

Yes I do. Those did nothing compared to the damge of this one. I-75 from Schaefer to Springwells will be closed at least 6 wks, and up to 6 months depending on how much damge was done to the concrete pillars

One blew up in Flint in 2003 as well. Our 99 SE was being repaired at Superior Pontiac because my wife hit a deer. Superior Pontiac borders the expressway....right where the tanker exploded. Shrapnel from the explosion damaged cars in the lot at Superior Pontiac. It'* a good thing our car was indoors at the time.
