Greensburg, Indiana — A video posted late Wednesday to Trucking Unlimited, your #1 source for trucking news, shows a fiery truck crash in Greensburg Indiana.

Fortunately, the driver of the rig was not killed in the crash, but there are currently no other details on his status.

The semi-truck was crossing U.S. Route 421 in Greensburg, Indiana after exiting interstate 74.

As you'll see in the footage, another driver had his dash cam recording and captured the truck going airborne and landing into a burst of flames.

While the date on the video indicates january 2012, all commentators thus far seem to indicate that the crash took place just last week.

A commenter describes what happened:

Eastbound on I-74 approaching exit 132 when another vehicle began drifting into his lane. Young told S/Tpr. Noah he swerved to avoid the other vehicle and ran off the south side of the interstate where the semi ran up a hill then through the guardrail. The semi then continued eastbound as it "ramped" the U.S. 421 interchange before striking another guardrail tearing off the fuel tanks causing the fuel to ignite.
