Driver Ignores Barricade, Drives over Downed Powerlines, Ends Up Dead

This is why you never drive around barricades, even if you can’t see what the hazard might be.



A father-of three has died after his car erupted in flames when he drove over a live utility wire.

Authorities say the street was blocked, but he had decided to drive around the barricade. As he did so, he drove over a live utility wire.




The car burst into a ball of fire and by the time first responders arrived the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames.

Video shows the car melting into the tarmac and thick black smoke rising from the roof. The inside of the car was almost completely black aide from the flickers of flame.




Responding officers found Anthony Gonzalez dead at the scene and the live power line lying in the roadway near the vehicle.
