WATCH: Truck hauling sawdust explodes into flames


A semi truck hauling sawdust exploded into flames after overturning in an intersection in Arkansas on Wednesday. 

The accident happened at around 7 a.m. on January 5th in Rogers, Arkansas at the intersections of North 2nd Street and West Road around 7 a.m.

According to THV 11 News, the truck took a turn and overturned, causing the load of sawdust to spill and catch fire in what looks like an explosion. The fire partially burned another vehicle, but only the truck driver was hurt in the incident. The extent of their injuries is not clear, but nearby gas station employees did rush to the scene to help the drivers out of their burning vehicles. 

The ordeal was caught on a nearby gas station surveillance camera. Check it out below.
