Howard, WI (WTAQ) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will probe a fatal truck explosion that happened last spring when a forklift pierced the vehicle’s natural gas fuel tank.

The federal agency said the April 3rd accident in Howard occurred when the truck braked, and the forklift rolled forward, broke through the cargo compartment wall and hit the gas tank behind the cab.

The truck’s 59-year-old driver died in the accident, and a 29-year-old passenger was ejected and injured.
