CHRIS YOUNG/ I FELT THE HEAT HIT ME IN
THE BACK, THE BIKE SHOOK WHEN IT
EXPLODED, "



Chris Young might have been last person


to see the driver of the tanker alive.



CHRIS YOUNG/HE WAS WEARING A RED
TRUCKER HAT AND HE WAVED AT ME WHEN I
DROVE BY, HE HAD HIS WINDOW ROLED
DOWN.."



Seconds later.. thick clouds of black
smoke and flames lit up Roanoke's
skyline..



WANITA SANSIL? "JUST A LOUD EXPLOSION,
IT WENT OFF 4 TIMES, THE FLAMES SHOT 12
STORIES HIGH."



The fireball from the explosion could
be seen from several spots around the
valley. Many stood outside for hours,
watching and taking pictures.



Others like Darron Taylor HEARD the
explosion before SEEING it.



DARRON/ I HEARD A BIG LOUD BREAKING
SCREECHING AND THEN A HORN TO FOLLOW.



DARRON/ "SOUNDS LIKE THE PERSON TRIED
TO STOP AND BLOW THE HORN, BUT I GUESS
NOTHING THEY COULD DO."



Young who was feet away from the crash
believes speed was a factor.



CHRIS"/I FIGURED HE COULDN'T GO TO THE
LEFT AND WAS GOING TO FAST, SO HE
LOCKED HIS BRAKES AND WENT RIGHT,
THAT'S WHEN HE WENT OVER THE TURN."



Police are still figuring out what
caused the crash. Meantime, a crane was
back at the scene picking up what was
left of the rig.
