A semi burst into flames when it crashed and plummeted from an overpass in Waterloo, Iowa Thursday morning. The driver jumped from the cab before it went over and was not injured.

Once the truck landed under the bridge it exploded again. Investigators say the driver was going too fast on slick roads.

The trailers were packed with magnesium engine parts, causing the explosions.
