This tanker hit the concrete barrier. Three lanes of SB are reopened, NB expected to be closed for repairs all night.

The fire shut down both directions of the interstate between Orchard Road and Belleview Avenue at about noon on Wednesday.

. . . .Another video shot by a witness shows a man jumping out of the passenger side of the fuel tanker as the flames began to spread. The man immediately rolled on the ground.

Another man rushed toward the burning tanker to help the first man. The man from the tanker stood up, then fell down, but was able to hobble away from the wreckage.

Hell on Earth. And those poor commuters. Hope the burns were minor.

Two CDOT workers are the ones on video who rushed in to save his life, which they surely did save.

Comments from those on scene as well about drivers driving right through pools of fuel leaking onto the highway,
and trails of fire then following their tire tracks. Crazy.
