Some of you probably have seen this clip already but I just saw it for the first time. Incredible! :fire:

Wow. Two things I noticed.
First, what I would believe to be the driver running across traffic and assume fleeing the scene.
Two, the balls on the camera man must be huge to be able to stand there and film.

Can you believe some of the other vehicles just sitting there, and not trying to get away from the inferno, with the bottles being propelled? I think I would be trying to execute a U-turn in the highway, and get moving to the first ramp that I could, and get off and clear the area! I might be crazy, but I ain't that dumb!

I was going to go by some fertilizer today. This video changed my mind. I think I will have my wife pick it up. :shhh:

On the serious side, the person filming it didn't even really flinch with the camera as the tanks were exploding. They must have had some kind of experience or training with explosions in the past.

That's scary stuff.

Take a look at the videos I posted over on Workshop Addict. There were cars on the highway that ended up with all kinds of damage from flying cylinders. It's not shown.

Kinda reminds me of the BIL frying a Turkey a couple years back.

Snow, Propane bottles, boiling oil, Booze, and fire...and a bunch of people that can't look away long enough to run away.

What a mess.
The only thing you can do is stand back until a pumper truck shows up.
