If you’ve seen Michael Bay or Indian movies, than it is a well documented fact that any vehicle that crashes will blow up into a massive fireball which can be seen from miles away but the fact of the matter is that it will not, unless you have a CNG or LPG tank fitted into your vehicle.

We’re not entirely sure as to what is that ‘gas’ tank which exploded in the van in this video, but we’re guessing its the pressurize LPG tank which exploded after the fire had been raging for sometime.

The explosion of a pressurized LPG tank cold explain the massive fireball that resulted in this explosion. But as you can see, everybody was surprised by the ferocity of the detonation, especially the bystanders, who were much too close.
