Watch a semi-truck go airborne and explode on impact
According to the story, Young was about to cross under US 421 when another driver drifted into his lane, forcing him to make a quick decision. He swerved to avoid the car, ran up a hill and through a guardrail, and then caught enough Dukes Of Hazzard-style air to clear the freeway. When the semi hit the ground on the other side, the impact tore the fuel tank off and the fuel caught fire, causing the explosion. The accident remains under investigation.
