WATCH: Huge fireballs rip through NY sky after truck overturns spilling PROPANE tanks on expressway

A truck carrying hundreds of propane tanks overturned on the Long Island Expressway (LIE) in the early hours of Tuesday morning, resulting in a series of massive explosions which echoed throughout the surrounding area.

Multiple fireballs ripped through the sky, shutting down both westbound lanes of the LIE for several hours, as emergency services scrambled to contain the blaze, which was captured by numerous eyewitnesses from nearby apartment buildings and passing cars.

Amazingly the driver managed to escape with only minor injuries, reportedly refusing medical treatment at the scene.
