A semi driver is recovering after his truck, loaded with beer, crashed and caught fire on Interstate 70 just west of downtown
Indianapolis about 2:30 a.m. Thursday. The driver, Carlos Torres, barely escaped the burning truck before it exploded. All
three westbound lanes were closed for more than six hours while emergency crews worked to clear the scene. The driver was
hauling 1,800 cases of Natural Light beer from Columbus, Ohio, to Terre Haute.
