Officials say the 62-year-old man was transporting machinery to Burton Industries in Mentor, Ohio on Thursday morning. Witnesses say after the driver made a right-hand turn into the driveway of the company, a propane tank fell off the vehicle and then the forklift ran right over the tank. Within an instant there was a fiery explosion. As the driver ran away from the scene, white smoke could be seen coming from his body. Chris Burton of Burton Industries described the explosion, 'It sounded like a bomb. It was very loud and we knew something was wrong. We didn't know what,' he said. Mr Burton said he ran outside with a fire extinguisher and saw the driver was already safe. 'When I saw it was a propane tank underneath the forks, I just took off running,' he said. The driver who is in his 60s, was treated for burns to his face and hands, then released a few hours later. 'He jumps right out of the tow motor and walks away with a little smoke,' said Richard Wilson, who runs a tool a business across the street. Mentor fire and police, along with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, are investigating.
