There was a sudden, deafening explosion, but when Jackson turned around, the flames engulfed them. “When I tried to get out of my burning automobile to drive to a gas station, they told me to jump out. After parking, I immediately jumped out of the car and did not return to it.
I was sitting in the silver car trailing the white truck on NB La Brea, ready to make a left turn. There was no time for us to react to the news of an accident, and it looked like a car had exploded right in front of us. Quite distressing and disturbing.
