Phoenix Man Loads U-Haul Truck Full of Stuff, Drives a Few Blocks, U-Haul Explodes
That's what happened in the area of 51st Avenue and Loop 101 this morning, and the driver's stuff went just about everywhere.
Phoenix police Sergeant Steve Martos tells New Times that the propane tank from the man's grill is what caused the explosion in the back of the truck.
The man had apparently made it just a few blocks, and was setting off for his new house in another state, Martos says.
Based on photos floatin' around the Internet, the explosion caused the U-Haul truck to turn into a flat-bed truck, and the driver's BMW 3-Series, which was on a carrier behind the truck, sustained some cringe-worthy damage from the blast.
