As the truck hit the wall, some spilt oil from the truck came into the contact with the cooking food on a vendor's outdoor grill and that resulted an instant, ignited spark which came back to the fuel loaded tank immediately, and exploded. The representatives of the Civil Protection Directorate visited the accident spot without delay to rescue the victims and assist law enforcement agencies, the Red Cross and health facilities.

Things like that can happen any where in the world with minimal or no casualty at all but when it happens in Haiti it is a certainty that heavy lost of lives will be registered.The reason, no system is put in place to protect lives in the event of an accident of this nature.
