A gasoline tanker truck took the turn too fast as it exited the freeway. The truck fell on its side and burst into flames. The fire caused northbound traffic on the Bayshore freeway to stop.

The fire was so intense that flames fell over the edge of the overpass and landed on the northbound lane of the freeway. The northbound lane was empty of all traffic.

A fire truck was parked on the overpass with hoses deployed to fight the fire. Southbound traffic continued to flow under the overpass, albeit much slower than normal.

A gathering of men and boys stopped and watched the fire. This is how people dressed in the 1960s.
