That's china.. fuck that looks scary! I imagine it was safer to stay inside the bus, it looks like the people running got knocked over by the blast

Video has emerged of the terrifying moment a gas tanker exploded on a highway in China, killing five people and sending visible shockwaves across the road.

People were filmed desperately trying to escape as smoke billowed from a tanker that had overturned on the major motorway in central China's Hunan province on Saturday.

After the road is engulfed in thick smoke a massive blast rocks the highway and surrounding valley.

Five people, including three firefighters, were killed in the explosion. Two fire trucks and five other vehicles were destroyed.

The tanker was carrying liquefied natural gas and had leaked around 20 tonnes before the blast, The Telegraph reports.

It is not yet known what caused the accident.
RIP for those who died.

what does it have to do with "That's China"? All I see is just a tanker flipped over and exploded, then people run on the highway away from it.

now this is China

Chinese highways are scary as fuck. I don't think I have EVER driven on the highway more than an hour without seeing an overturned truck, or a bad accident on the side of the road. Taking the bus from Guangzhou to the border is a scary ride when the driver decides to weave in between all these improperly maintained trucks with poorly trained drivers

So what happened? The camera trolled us at the end.. Are the people on the road at that distance? That is crazy if at that distance they still got hurt by the blast.

how many LNG tankers do we have in BC?

and I thought LNG is not flammable (but explodes?) when exposed to the atmosphere.
