Hurst Home Explodes in Fiery Burst Just as Officers Arrive on Scene

Newly released dash cam video shows the exact moment a house in Texas explodes after a car drove into a home hitting a gas line

Dashcam video from the Hurst Police Department in Texas shows a scary moment where an officer and a bystander had a close call when a home exploded. Three people inside the home were injured and two officers suffered minor injuries.

The blast happened near Dallas, Texas on April 7 after officials say the brakes of the vehicle failed as the driver lost control and hit a gas line. The crash apparently ruptured a gas line. The entire chain of events was caught on camera.

Officer Travis Hiser says things could have been much worse for first responders. "Otherwise, I would have been up on the wall and it would have exploded completely into my face".

Shortly after the explosion, the officers could hear screaming inside the home.

Despite one being critically injured by the blast, all parties are expected to recover, according to The Dallas Morning News.

The children - who were OK - were turned over to child protective services, Petruch said. The woman's boyfriend was inside the store shopping when the shots were fired.

A woman suffered burns to almost half her body.

"They're both strong. They've done a lot in their lives", said Shirey.

"Excellent job by Officer Hiser, Corporal Tooker as well as also the rest of the group who helped at this incident", authorities said in an Facebook article.

The driver of the vehicle, 40-year-old Arnulfo Castro, was arrested for driving without a license.
