House Explodes Minutes After Getting Hit By A Ford Explorer

A house in Hurst, Texas exploded earlier this month moments after being hit by a SUV.

According to NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth, the accident occurred on April 7th when a driver lost control of their Ford Explorer and then slammed into the house. Unfortunately, this caused a gas line to rapture and the house exploded right as police arrived on the scene.

As you can see in the dashcam video, a man is standing in the front yard as an officer begins walking up to the house. Suddenly, the house explodes and sends debris at the officer, his patrol car and the man in the front yard.

Unfortunately, three people were still in the house at the time of the explosion. They were eventually rescued and taken to the hospital in critical condition. One of the victims has reportedly been released while the other two suffered burns and appear to remain hospitalized.

Two police officers were also injured and one was taken to the hospital for evaluation.

The driver of the Explorer reportedly managed to escape seriously injuries in both the initial crash and the explosion. CBS News says the brakes failed on the SUV and this contributed to the accident. It appears the driver won’t be facing any charges for the crash but he was reportedly arrested for not having a valid driver’s license.

In an interview following the explosion, Officer Travis Hiser told the local NBC affiliate “There was definitely some divine intervention that was reaching down and slowing those vehicles down from making [it to the] scene and then taking a finger and pushing me away from the house and the path that I went. Otherwise, I would have been up on the wall and it would have exploded completely into my face.”

    Brakes failed, eh? Or maybe you were perhaps going way too fast! Anyone else find it interesting that so many crashes involve someone driving with a suspended or invalid license? It’s almost like it’s just too easy to simply not have one at all.
