    EXPLOSION_1553692372858_79369857_ver1.0_640_360.jpgD2q5UPMWoAAVB5Q.jpg


    Tanker truck full of ammonium nitrate headed to the missile plant. It shook my house 23 miles away. 7:10 this morning. That is what is left of the highway. 15 to 20 foot deep crater .

    RIP the driver. He didn't feel a thing.

    ...how long is it going to take to fill *that* pothole?

    probably in pieces so small they're unidentifiable.. likely raining down in an area miles wide. We'd have to know how much it was carrying and at what concentration to do the math, but if it was full.. 3000 and 9000 gallons or so.. its just...gone.

    I see what looks like a few pieces of truck in that hole. Possibly chunk of a tire and some sort of a gate looking thing

    WOW! A police officer just come by and told us the trailer brakes caught on fire. He turned onto a side road to get away from people. The brake fire set the explosion off while he was still trying to get it further out away from houses. A Real hero if this is true.

    Getting more details from our police buddies. The driver waved off the fire dept. Had them get everyone out of there area. A fireman told him the last he seen of the driver he had grabbed a fire extinguisher and was running back to the truck. So if this is true Yes what a man!

    Would take a tremendous amount of courage to go back to that truck to fight the flames. Goddamn.

    AN is nothing to fuck with, and what we used for road craters. RIP the driver.
