This fireworks-filled truck explodes during a car race
Fireworks and auto racing are two things that go well together but can always go wrong. This is exactly what happened during a motor race in the UK. The combination did not go well as the spectators expected.

Video of the incident has emerged online showing how a truck standing next to the race track during the event caught fire. According to a Daily Mail report, the truck was filled with firecrackers which were to be presented at the event.
This was apparently part of a special festival that included fireworks and firecracker races. As the fireworks were going off, one apparently landed in the back of the truck which was filled with unlit fireworks. Right after that, the fireworks stored in the rear of the vehicle caught fire and the vehicle caught fire, setting off the fireworks at random. As there were random explosions and a barrage of exploding shells in the sky, crews brought the blaze under control.
Later, firefighters arrived at the scene, which suggested that there was no fire truck already on standby during the occurrence. The report claims that several fireworks were launched at random and blown into the crowd before one landed in the truck. Some of them are said to have hit people.
It is certainly a bad idea to have an open bed truck full of fireworks near the exhibit, let alone the exhibit center. The report also claims that the race would have started while the truck was still smoking. However, there is no news of any injuries from the incident.
