US firefighters spray a foam mixture onto the burning wreckage of a tanker truck that overturned and exploded on the six-lane Brooklyn-Queens Expressway near Roosevelt Avenue Monday, January 16, 2006, in the Queens borough of New York. Authorities did not know why the truck overturned. The truck was carrying 8,000 gallons of diesel fuel, said Jarrod Bernstein, a spokesman for the city's Office of Emergency Management. The explosion shut down the expressway in both directions as well as a nearby subway line.[AP]
