Truck explodes after head-on collision with car in Russia

Dash cam footage shows the dramatic moment a truck burst into flames following a collision which occurred on the M4 Don highway in Russia’s Voronezh Region on Thursday. The accident involved two trucks and a Ford Focus. It was caused by a wheel which fell off from one of the trucks and sent the Ford Focus, driving in the opposite direction, to lose control and crash into the following truck head-on.

According to the local traffic police, when the firefighters arrived at the scene, the Freightliner was completely burned out, while the driver had managed to escape the vehicle.
