FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A traffic accident and explosion Tuesday afternoon led to a power outage in Madera.
Investigators say a pick-up truck swerved into the path of an oncoming big rig at Avenue 12 and Road 26 1/2.
The two trucks collided, the big rig hit a power pole as a result and then exploded in a ball of fire.
The driver of the big rig walked away without any injuries. Two people in the pickup suffered moderate to major injuries.
