ESCALON (CBS13) – It was a dangerous scene when a tanker burst into flames Saturday while making its way to an elderly couple’s Escalon home.
Unfortunately, the driver of the tanker truck died in the crash; but it could have been much worse if not for some fire crews passing by and the California Highway Patrol officer who went above and beyond.
“Everywhere you looked was on fire,” said CHP Officer Angel Arceo. “It was pretty crazy.”
A tanker carrying 8,000 gallons of gas burst into flames after colliding with a box car, drenching both sides of Mariposa Road with fuel.
“In my eight years on the job, its probably one of the craziest things I’ve seen,” said Arceo.
The three car crash killed the driver of the tanker truck, and sparked a 2-acre grass fire that burning dangerously close to Gene Nimocks’ home.
