WATCH: Canadian sky lights up after truck collides with semi-truck carrying fireworks

A collision on a Canadian highway between a semi-truck and a pickup truck created impromptu, hour-long fireworks display that dazzled drivers for nearly an hour.

“It was almost like the Fourth of July,” Sergeant Mike Sargent, with Hope Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), told CityNews.

According to RCMP, at approximately 10 p.m. on Oct. 26, a semi-trailer rear-ended a parked pickup truck towing a trailer of fireworks near Hope, British Columbia.

Footage following the collision, captured by Ryan Kuhn, showed a dazzling display of fireworks lighting up the night sky.

 

Authorities did not say where the fireworks were being transported to, and whether they were for private use or to be sold.
