admin 0

A mining truck on a Queensland road has crashed into a wall and exploded, sending out a plume of black smoke that has been captured on camera.

The truck, which had just turned onto a dirt road, veered off the road and exploded about a metre away from the roadside.

A second truck then crashed into the truck, destroying it.

The truck was towed away to a repair shop.

A spokeswoman for the Queensland Government said it was aware of the incident and that the Queensland Transport Safety Bureau was on scene.
