Police said the driver was trying to avoid another vehicle; so he swerved and ended up running off the interstate.

He then reportedly flew up a hill, slamming into a guardrail.

The fuel tanks on the truck were ripped off, causing fuel to ignite.

The driver escaped with minor injuries; his young son, who was also in the truck, wasn't seriously injured.
