After the accident, the Shenzhen traffic police announced the cause of the high-speed fire in the tanker. The driver didn't slow down and evade in time in front of the car in front of him, he hurriedly hit the steering wheel when approaching, and finally touched the isolation belt and turned to catch fire. The petrol leaked and caught fire, causing a small car under the bridge to burn and damage. The accident caused 3 vehicles to be damaged and road facilities to be damaged. Fortunately, there were no casualties at the scene.

It should be noted that, unlike ordinary freight trucks, fuel tanker trucks are hazardous chemical transportation vehicles, which carry mostly "flammable and explosive" substances. In the event of collisions and other traffic accidents, they will definitely cause significant personnel and property losses . Therefore, drivers who drive such vehicles must maintain good professionalism and a high degree of vigilance, to avoid dangers. For example: do not drive distractedly and keep the driving distance.
