Colorado Springs police said the car erupted in flames after it was rear-ended by another car on Highway 115 and Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard.

Shortly after a fire truck arrived to put out the fire, the first explosion happened.  A second, smaller explosion occurred shortly after that.

The explosions were caused by oxygen canisters in the trunk of the burning car, police said.

Two police cruisers and one Colorado Springs Fire Department fire truck were damaged during one of the explosions by flying debris. There were no injuries to emergency responders.
