Tanker truck fireball kills two and injures dozens

August 6, 2018 4:06 pm

A tanker and a lorry have collided on a motorway on the outskirts of the northern Italian city of Bologna, causing a major fire and explosion.

Images released by police show the tanker ploughing into the back of the lorry that had come to a stop in motorway traffic.

They then caught fire, triggering a huge fireball, and the bridge they were on partly collapsed.

Two people have died and at least 55 have been injured, Italian media say.
