Ad Feedback

Sections of a normally busy Detroit, Mich., freeway are closed indefinitely after a fiery crash.

Flames shot hundreds of feet into the air when a gasoline tanker truck exploded during a collision with another car on Interstate 75 Wednesday evening.

Witnesses said flames and black, billowing plumes of smoke reached 150 to 200 feet into the air. Radio station WWJ-AM reported gas that reached sewers along the freeway caught fire.

It took several hours to get the blaze under control.

An entire highway overpass basically melted from the heat, but miraculously, no one was killed.

Three drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
