Truck Explosion Causes Shutdown of the 60 Freeway

Posted on December 15, 2011

A tanker truck carrying 8,800 gallons of gasoline exploded on the 60 freeway under an overpass in Montebello early Wednesday afternoon. The truck accident caused a shutdown of traffic in both directions and authorities warn that the 60 could be shut down until Thursday, while crews work to clean up the damage after the accident. Authorities are unsure as to what caused the accident, whether it was debris in the road, or a collision. The driver of the tanker tried to move the vehicle to the side of the road, but when he could not, he abandoned it under the bridge. Witnesses near the accident describe hearing two loud blasts and feeling the ground shake. Authorities say that these blasts were the result of the concrete in the bridge melting as the intense flames from the vehicle overheated the structural supports of the bridge. The truck accident caused major traffic jams throughout the area and authorities are advising travelers to seek alternative routes.
