A horrendous crash occurred this weekend on Route 78 near Union, NJ resulting in one fatality (a 24-year-old Chatham resident). Our hearts are with the families of those who were killed and injured.
One of the truck drivers involved in the crash barely escaped with his life from a burning tanker. Dramatic video of the incident was captured by several drivers.
The tanker involved in the crash held over 9,000 gallons of fuel, causing a tremendous pillar of smoke and flame to rise from the scene of the accident.
You can visibly see and hear the impending explosions of the tanker. This was a serious crash that resulted in some drivers being stuck on the road for over six hours.
