PHOENIX - The flames went soaring into the early-morning sky and a FOX 10 viewer captured the crash right after it happened.
At the center of the flames was a car that police say ran a red light and slammed into the fuel tank of a flat-bed truck with Richard Salkauskas behind the wheel.
"A lot of flames, big crash... that's my first crash in 20 years," he said.
He survived and so did the driver of the Kia that hit him. Both cars are charred and unrecognizable.
It's a shocking sight and Richard recalls how he made it out safe.
"I start approaching my green light and the only thing I can see is two lights coming over to me," he said. "I see the flames coming from underneath the truck, so I tried to open my door a couple times, the door opened, I jumped right on the hood of the other vehicle."

Drone footage captured the smoldering wreckage of a Boeing 747 cargo jet in the devastated village of Dacha-Suu, Monday, after the plane crashed into the settlement just outside the Kyrgyz capital of Bishkek earlier in the day, killing at least 37 people.
A Turkish cargo plane has crashed in a residential area near the main airport in Kyrgyzstan, destroying half a village and killing at least 37 people in the aircraft and on the ground, officials said.
The Boeing 747 crashed at 7.40am local time while approaching Manas airport, south of the capital Bishkek, in the Central Asian nation, according to the Emergency Situations Ministry.
Footage from the scene showed the plane’s nose stuck inside a brick house and large chunks of debris scattered around.
A dozen body bags were laid out in the yard of one home. A car parked nearby was mangled in the crash, and a fridge lay open.
The bodies of 15 victims, including five children, all of them Kyrgyz citizens, had been identified by Monday evening, the Kyrgyz government said.
Another 15 people, including six children, were taken to hospital, according to the health ministry.
Kyrgyz emergency situations minister Kubatbek Boronov said 23 out of the 43 houses in the village had been destroyed. Several dozen homes were near the fence surrounding the runway.
The plane, which had departed from Hong Kong, belonged to the Istanbul-based cargo company ACT Airlines, which said the dead included the plane’s four Turkish crew members: two pilots, a freight expert and a flight technician.
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear. Mr Boronov told reporters that it was foggy at Manas when the plane came down but weather conditions were not critical.
One of the plane’s two flight recorders was recovered at the scene, according to the Kyrgyz prime minister’s office.
A Wellington woman who told police she was having a “bad day” allegedly went on a rampage Thursday at a T-Mobile store in Palm Springs, according to an arrest report.
Shinobia Montoria Wright is accused of driving her SUV into the store, smashing glass displays with a squeegee and then attacking a store employee.
Wright, 26, is facing charges of aggravated battery, battery, burglary, criminal mischief over $1,000 and reckless driving. Wright underwent surgery at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis for injuries sustained to her forearms during the crash and was taken for a mental health evaluation under the Baker Act.
Wright remained hospitalized Saturday morning, a deputy at the Palm Beach County Jail said. As a result, she could not make her first appearance in front of a Palm Beach County judge. The hearing will likely happen Sunday if Wright is released from care.
Wright showed up at the T-Mobile store at South Congress Avenue and 10th Avenue North on Wednesday looking to exchange her cracked iPhone, the report said. Wright told a store manager that it was her birthday and she was going to “bug out” if she didn’t get the phone replaced. The manager told Palm Springs police that Wright did not “appear right” and seemed to be under the influence of a substance.
Wright returned to the store Thursday, but never walked inside. Instead, she allegedly rammed her 2005 Nissan Armada SUV through the front entrance. A store employee injured his knee and was taken to the hospital after being hit by a display case toppled by the SUV.
