On July 2nd a food truck’s propane tank exploded on a street in Philadelphia’s Feltonville area. Authorities are still not sure exactly what caused the explosion, which happened while the truck’s owner and her daughter were working on the vehicle. The two family members were hospitalized with burns and other injuries along with several bystanders. Surveillance cameras across the street captured the explosion of the La Parrillada Chapina food truck, which created a fireball so large it engulfed the truck and reached the other side of the street.
Though authorities are still determining the cause of the incident, the staff at Executive Auto Salon couldn’t help but cringe upon hearing this story, wishing that all food truck manufacturers would take the necessary safety precautions before putting the trucks into circulation so as to avoid such terrible accidents. The company is known for its food truck manufacturing and custom car painting in Philadelphia.
