Tanker truck on northbound I75 under the 9 Mile overpass exploded. MDOT cameras had some great pics, but they laready shut the camera's off. Channel 7 has photos that viewers took.

Looks pretty wicked on TV.. We can see the smoke from home (13/Hoover) & can smell a trace of gas in the air...
They need to get some foam on the fire to smother it.. Water will spread it into the sewers & possibly make things a lot worse.
I'm not a firefighter but water on gas seems futile to me...

I'm at 10 and John R and it's pretty nasty here. When we drove over 75 on 696 at 8:30 we could see the flames. My brother saw the smoke all the way from 19 and Dequindre. No report on any injuries. Hope everyone is okay...

"Eyewitnesses say the tanker tried to make it under the Nine Mile overpass but the top of the tanker hit the bridge, causing the explosion" ... from the ch7 website

I'm out in Seattle today... pretty wild hearing about this out here!

Not what happened. A car cut the tanker off an it flipped. Guy that caused it took off runnin.I was listening to the scanner as it happened. Go to radio reference.com you can listen to my live hazel park feed and archives.

Stilltrying to get my parents to leave. Smoke moved toward the north now. They are a block east
