Ted Bibeault, who witnessed the crash and jumped into action, described the moment as shocking.

“Fifty times the normal bang of a trash can, that’s what is sounded like,” said Bibeault. “The screeching noise. The truck was sliding sideways. The dust looked like a tornado came through.”

No further information was released.
