RIYADH - At least 10 people were killed when a truck carrying flammable liquids crashed in Riyadh on Thursday, triggering a large explosion, reports Al Jazeera
The blast occurred after the fuel tanker crashed into a concrete flyover in the Saudi capital.
According to Al Arabiya, the explosion leveled a nearby industrial building and injured more than 50 people. Several adjacent buildings were damaged and nearby vehicles, including a minibus on the flyover, were set on fire, said Reuters.
The crash took place at a junction on Khurays Road, one of the city's main arteries.
Saudi Arabia's al-Ekhbariya television put the death toll at 14 and at least 57 wounded, reports Reuters.
More than 100 emergency personnel were combing the wreckage on the flyover and searching for victims in the rubble of the building - a heavy machinery and vehicles warehouse.
