Dodge Charger Slams Into Fuel Tanker, Bursts Into Flames

A scary scene unfolded recently in Phoenix, Arizona when a Dodge Charger slammed into the side of a fuel tanker truck, then burst into flames. Emergency crews reacted quickly to put out the raging inferno and treat those who were injured in the crash.

Arizona bill would outlaw cruising bans.

According to OnScene TV, a Phoenix cop saw the Mopar hit the truck on 51st Ave just south of the I-10 overpass at about 2:11 am on February 15, 2024. It’s not clear if the Charger was speeding or behaving recklessly before the collision.

Shortly after the crash, the Dodge began to burn. Thankfully the tanker truck was empty so only fumes from the fuel which was inside earlier could have contributed to the fire. Otherwise, everyone in the Charger might have been incinerated on impact or shortly after.

When the officer reached the muscle car, he found two people were still inside. With backup on the scene, police pulled those two injured parties out of the vehicle and far enough away they were safe from the blaze.
