Terrifying semi crash caught on camera

August 03, 2013

We have learned there were no serious injuries reported after a fiery crash in Greensburg, Indiana that involved a tractor-trailer veering off an Indiana interstate and briefly going airborne before bursting into flames.

Video of the crash shows the red, flatbed truck speeding into a median near an exit ramp and hitting a hill, then a sudden explosion of fire and black smoke.

Indiana State Police say the driver and his 7-year-old son got away with only minor injuries.

Young told police he was heading east on Interstate 74 near Greensburg early Thursday afternoon when he swerved to avoid a vehicle drifting into his lane.

State police say the truck's fuel ignited after its tanks were torn when it struck a guardrail.
