Trucker Escapes Fiery Crash Through Windshield

A tanker truck driver was seen on video escaping the massive blaze that resulted from a crash on Route 78 in Union Township, NJ.  by crawling out of his windshield. A other man was killed in the crash, according to State Police.

Joe DeGioia, 28, was driving to Hoboken on 78 eastbound when he saw the crash and began to take video, ultimately capturing the moment Singh escaped."I saw it in the distance and I didn’t think anything of it, but when I got closer it was surreal," DeGioia said. "I started taking video and you can hear two or three explosions and then I saw the man crawl out of the windshield of the truck. After that I stopped recording."DeGioia said Singh walked to the side of the road and looked "completely out of it," before paramedics came and assisted him."I drove over the median from the express lane to the local lane like a lot of other people were," DeGioia said. "Even three lanes away I could feel the heat. It felt like I was standing next to the biggest bonfire."Williams said the mulch truck driver, Mario Quiroz, 53, of North Bergen, was treated and released from an area hospital.
