Video shows explosion and fireball as wrong-way driver slams into tanker truck in Ohio

A wrong-way driver died Sunday when he slammed into a fuel tanker truck on I-75 in Dayton, Ohio, triggering a massive explosion and fireball that was captured on video.

Dayton news outlets report the driver was traveling the wrong way on the interstate around 4:45 p.m. Sunday when the crash occurred.

The driver killed in the crash was identified as 30-year-old Andrew Brunsman of Centerville, Ohio. Remarkably, the driver of the tanker truck was able to flee the wreck and reportedly suffered minor injuries.

The accident closed all lanes of the interstate for hours, and the heat of the fire damaged the roadway and is requiring repairs this week.
