Huge explosion after driver attempts to start car in eastern China

A huge fireball burst out of a car when a motorist tried to start the vehicle in eastern China.

The terrifying video, filmed in the city of Hefei in Anhui Province on November 29, shows a girl fleeing quickly when a car suddenly exploded just in front of her.

The motorist was seen diving out of the door to escape the blast.

According to reports, the car was modified to use gas instead of petrol. The explosion may have been caused by a gas leak.

A police officer stopped a sprinkler truck to try to use it to extinguish the fire before the firemen arrived.

The injured motorist was sent to hospital for treatment.

Although the motorist suffered large burns to his body, he is not in life-threatening condition.
