    Holy, that title was no exaggeration. Looks like the driver got out right in the nick of time.

    I'm more surprised that this didn't appear to be Russia.

    Makes you think when truckers pass you flat out with foreign plates. One of the risks being a despatch driver and using major roads daily. Hope no one was hurt in this accident.

    Hell of a show though.

    Blimey! The person filming is braver than me, I'd have been long gone.

    After looking at that clip several times.. I am surprised that vehicle has been used to carry LPG\propane cylinders. I am sure there are mandatory height and legal requirement of transportation in cages to avoid that situation.

    Anyone in the hazardous material trade comment?

    Brave indeed. Being a retired fireman I remember being called to an outbuilding on fire on an industrial estate. We were given no indication that there were was a propane cylinder in there. The thing exploded and I could hear a piece of shrapnel whizzing past my head. I was about 50 yards away

    As much fun as we have had over the years with cylinders and a sledge hammer - that scenario does not look like fun at all.
