At least 153 people were killed Sunday when an oil tanker exploded in Pakistan, according to reports.

 

The tanker overturned after the driver lost control on a sharp bend on a road from Karachi to Lahore after the vehicle blew a tie. Drivers rushed to the site to collect the leaking fuel, which exploded after someone apparently lit a cigarette, Reuters reported, citing officials.

 

"People of the area and passersby had started gathering fuel when it exploded, burning everybody," provincial government spokesman Malik Muhammad Ahmed Khan told Reuters.

When a tanker overturns and starts leaking gasoline, don't walk but RUN the other direction!!!!!!!!!! Don't run Towards it and start soaking yourself in Gasoline trying to steel it.

It is a tad too soon, yea. Plus, a lot of those people were probably some combination of ignorant and desperate. I mean, if a good life choice for you is to run into a flaming tanker, your life probably isn't going swimmingly in the first place.
