A Massive Food Truck Explosion Injured 12 People in Philadelphia
By Hugh Merwin
Two propane tanks aboard the Feltonville, Pennsylvania-based La Parrillada Chapina truck exploded yesterday while its mother-daughter operators were working inside its kitchen. Olga Galdemez, 42, and Jaylin Landaverry, 17, suffered major burns and were listed in critical condition. Others who were injured included a man who had been sitting on a nearby porch, and a woman emerging from a nail salon down the street whose "whole back got sprayed with debris." Witnesses describe flames shooting hundreds of feet into the sky, and the four-foot propane tank was later recovered in a nearby yard, 150 feet from the truck. Philadelphia authorities are now working to establish the cause of the explosion. The resulting fireball was caught on tape by a camera outside a nearby business, which may prove to be of some help with their determination.
