WATCH: Garbage truck bursts into flames while picking up trash 


A garbage truck burst into flames after a hydraulic failure in this short clip. 

In the video, a man with a garbage truck based Youtube channel is filming the truck picking up refuse in his neighborhood when the truck suddenly busts some kind of line, sending fluid spraying all over the vehicle. 

Almost immediately, the truck and its cab burst into flames, causing the man inside the cab to jump out of the truck, just barely avoiding catching fire. 

“Hydraulic line broke sprayed on the hot engine,” wrote one viewer. 

Check out the clip, below.
