Commuter Nightmare: Tanker Explodes in SF Bay Area

Yesterday morning a tanker exploded just south of the Bay Bridge, igniting 8,600 gallons of gasoline into a massive fiery blaze. According to this detailed footage, it appears that the fireball started on the lower deck melted parts of the deck above. With parts of the highway missing and steel melted onto the concrete ramp below, the fire caused severe damage to the I-80, I-880, and the MacAuthur Maze. Though the fire undoubtedly caused immense damage — forcing hundreds of thousands of commuters to seek alternative travel routes and public transportation — it’s incredible that no one was fatally injured as a result.
