A dump truck trying to avoid a car that was stopped on a Texas highway ended up crashing, in an explosive wreck caught on surveillance cameras Tuesday.

The crash happened around 6 a.m. in Grand Prarie, located west of Dallas, CBS Dallas reported.

Officials with the Texas Department of Public Safety told the news outlet the driver of a PT Cruiser had stopped in the newly opened lanes on Highway 360 and was reversing when the truck approached.

The truck could be seen in traffic cameras swerving and clipping the car before striking the center barrier and bursting into flames.
