Massive Highway Explosion In Italy Kills 2, Injures Dozens More

Police closed the highway and the surrounding area of Borgo Panigale.

An officer at the Bologna prefecture who declined to be named told Xinhua that 67 people suffered burns or injuries from flying glass and debris, of whom two are in critical condition.

The explosion happened when a tanker truck, loaded with liquefied petroleum gas, got into a traffic accident near the airport.

Highway police said only the tanker driver died in the crash, revising earlier reports by the Italian carabinieri that the accident caused two fatalities.

Video and photos from witnesses showed a massive fireball shooting into the air on a highway in the suburbs of Bologna on Tuesday afternoon.

One report said the explosion was caused by a crash of a tanker carrying flammable liquid.

Video released by police shows an extensive crater and the charred remains of the destroyed truck.

Firefighters are now battling the flames at the scene on the bypass in Borgo Panigale.

Speaking to television news channel Sky TG24, police officers said that the extremely high temperatures caused by the blast and fire - which took firefighters almost two hours to put out - caused the road to collapse.
