Watch video of USPS truck burning in Kansas City, Missouri Wednesday.
A U.S. Postal Service delivery truck exploded into a ball of flames down the street from (Brian) Riley’s home in a subdivision off N.E. Barry Road.
Riley and other neighbors watched helplessly as the fully engulfed truck then rolled backward down North Marston Avenue before coming to a stop on a neighbor’s front yard.
“This guy’s extremely lucky that nobody got hurt, including himself,” Riley said. “But he easily could’ve taken out a couple vehicles and a couple houses.”
Riley suspects the driver blew a tire after gunning the engine, in a nearly futile attempt to crest an icy incline on the road.
