A tractor-trailer on the Trans-Canada Highway collided with a pickup truck towing its own trailer stuffed with fireworks last week. The crash caused the fireworks to start going off. Onlookers saw a spectacular display of colorful explosions as the pickup went out in a blaze of glory.
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police stated that the collision happened on Highway 1 at 10:00 p.m. about six miles west of Hope, British Columbia, CBC News reports. The night sky offered the perfect backdrop to this pyrotechnic carnage. The eastbound lanes were cut off by a wall of burning hot light. The only thing that drivers could do was sit there and watch for the next hour until the fireworks stopped.
