New photos: Highway 50 crash, explosion

Highway 50 was closed for more than 7 hours Friday after a fiery crash near Salida.

The crash happened around 9:30am at approximately mile post 228. A semi tanker truck rolled over and caught fire. The driver died.

The truck was hauling fuel. It took hours to get the fire out, clean up, and haul away the truck.

Thanks to Ted Butterfield for these photos from the scene.
