DeSOTO -- The driver of a semi-truck managed to get out alive after his truck crashed and burst into flames on the interstate.
It all started with a flat tire. The driver says he had a blow out and hit the guard rail on southbound Interstate 35 near Belt Line Road in DeSoto Friday morning.
That's when the gas tank ruptured, sparking a fire.
The driver got out without injuries and the flames were put out by rescue crews.
