Video shows massive explosion in California McDonald's drive-thru

COACHELLA, CA (KPTV) -

A video on YouTube shows a massive pickup truck explosion at a McDonald's drive-thru in California.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports the truck driver heard a hissing sound coming from a propane tank in the bed of the pickup, so he put the truck in park. He tried to move one of the tanks, but it exploded and flames began to engulf the pickup.

A YouTube video taken by a bystander showed the fire burning in the bed of a pickup truck before a massive fireball erupted at the 1:56 mark of the video.

ABC7 in southern California said the driver of the truck was hospitalized, while three of his passengers escaped uninjured.

The McDonald's restaurant was evacuated.
