Tractor-trailer bursts into flames on highway

A tractor-trailer burst into flames on the BQE near Hamilton Avenue in Brooklyn on Friday morning, spewing diesel fuel all over the highway, officials said.

The truck billowed smoke as firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze at about noon.

A passenger car could be seen sitting smashed and singed just feet from the semi truck, photos show.

Paramedics evacuated passengers from both vehicles, and no one was seriously injured, officials said.
