There isn't an I34 in CA, it is the 134. Cars can overturn and right themselves, but not likely a tanker.

Wow, just watched the video--that was an intense scene especially with a running fuel fire. I think there was a second tanker that overturned. I grew up in CA and that size tanker typically ran in tandem and I only saw one upright in the video. Tanker fires happened pretty regularly down there due to lots of tankers on the road and millions of cars all the time. No other state or place on earth has more cars moving at any given time than CA.

Ground based camera crews perhaps couldn't get that close due to freeway shut downs. Plus, this film wasn't filmed via helicopter which is often the case in SOCAL since it's easier to get film crews to the scene via helicopter due to the always fucked up status of CA freeways. If this was during the day, the footage would have been better. Who knows, this could just be another attempt to drive up fuel costs.

Wow nice catch OP! It was literally a river of fire streaming down the freeway. I was surprised the authorities let the cars drive by on the adjacent ramp which only appeared to be about 100 feet from the burning tanker. I've driven by a pick up truck that was on fire once on the freeway and was probably a good 40 or more feet away with the windows up. We could still feel the intense heat through the glass driving at a good 40 mph pace past it.

Two phenomena explain your experience: running fuel fires and radiant heat.
