The link provided by Tacos4Brkfst below was excellent: it makes clear exactly what`s going on in this video.

The intermittent shooting geysers of flame are ventings from the relief valve of what was probably a 5-lb propane tank in the back of the truck. If the fire is steady and continues long enough, it is just a matter of time before an explosion occurs because the falling levels of liquid propane in the tank expose more and more of the steel to the full heat of the fire, which weakens the metal. In essence, those flame geysers are a warning that an explosion is imminent.

When the metal of the propane tank finally gave out, it appears that the walls surrounding the bed of the pickup truck contained much of the shrapnel, thank goodness.

This may have an effect on the truck`s resale value.

Regardless, it looks like he ordered his sandwich...

I actually live a few miles away from where this happened. Someone had some propane tanks and one was leaking and a spark lit it on fire and did all of that.

Good god I watched the whole video and I thought "what the HELL was he carrying? Propane?" Looks like I was right. I suspect the giant explosion came from when it finally got to the gas tank.

That`s some damn fine reporting JaLacaob. I wish every link here had an explanation of what was going. Actually I`m surprised this wasn`t somehow tagged "This is why you are fat America" or some crap.

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.
