Tanker truck explosion forces closure of 91 Freeway in Corona

May 28, 2010 | 11:34 am
A tanker truck burst into flames and exploded Friday on the 91 Freeway in Corona, prompting the CHP to close the freeway in both directions.

The tanker exploded about 10:39 a.m. after an accident involving two other vehicles. TV footage showed a huge fireball burning on the freeway.

Before the explosion, the California Highway Patrol closed the eastbound Riverside Freeway at Green River and the westbound 91 at the 71 Freeway for safety reasons.

Responding CHP officers had been unable to locate the driver of the tanker truck, according to a CHP incident report.
