MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — Take a look at this inferno on a New Jersey road. It turns out a deer is to blame for igniting the massive fireball.

Police say it all started early Wednesday morning when a car hit the deer on State Highway 37 in Manchester Township.

Things really got dangerous when a tanker truck filled with gasoline hit the damaged car and flipped over, triggering the huge explosion.

It’s amazing when you look at the pictures that no one was seriously hurt.
