  1. Mmmm tasty silicone oil fire smoke…Brilliant, five days from now a flock of birds is gonna fall out of the sky over California and everyone is gonna wonder why

  2. Back in 2007 I witnessed a tanker truck full of diesel fuel overturn on an elevated freeway much like this in Tampa Bay Florida. We were approaching from the freeway below much like the scene in this video. First we saw sparks and thought it was fireworks or something and then it burst into flames as it kept sliding. The truck driver had taken a tight curve offramp not meant for semi trucks and couldn’t make the turn and flipped over. As we got closer there was a big fireball like in a Michael Bay movie and flaming diesel fuel was shooting out of it. It came to rest to the right of the lanes we were travelling on and flaming diesel fuel was flowing down onto the county storage lot below it. Flaming diesel fuel was leaking down through the expansion joints onto the road next to us as we drove under the overpass. No way were we going to pull over before the overpass and get stuck there for hours. As we drove on there was another mushroom fireball cloud explosion behind us. The driver died and there was so much damage to the overpass they had to rebuild the whole thing. Also, a police officer responding to the scene near the storage lot was injured when a manhole cover blew into the air. Craziest shit I ever saw. (I didn’t see the manhole cover incident, just to clarify.)
