Collision/explosion

On the eve of my post about an exploding fireworks factory in Columbia, news of more impromptu fireworks displays on a snowy highway in Galesburg, Michigan, U.S. Hazardous weather conditions yesterday caused a pileup of 123 vehicles, killing one person and injuring 16 others. The series of crashes included a truck carrying 440,000 pounds (200,000 kg) of hazardous materials and another truck hauling fireworks, both of which subsequently caught fire. A haz-mat team determined that the hazardous materials burned off, and the fireworks resulted in a spectacular display captured on video.
