KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Brian Riley heard some racket Wednesday night outside of his home in the Northland but, at first, he didn’t think much of it.
“I could hear tires for like 10, 15 minutes, just tires squealing, like someone was stuck in the snow,” Riley said. “I didn’t think much about it.”
After his dogs began barking loudly, Riley decided to check one of his home security cameras for a peek outside. And he couldn’t believe his eyes.

“I think everybody was shocked to see it,” Riley said. “Like, ‘Holy cow! What is happening right now?’”
A U.S. Postal Service delivery truck exploded into a ball of flames down the street from Riley’s home in a subdivision off N.E. Barry Road.
Riley and other neighbors watched helplessly as the fully engulfed truck then rolled backward down North Marston Avenue before coming to a stop on a neighbor’s front yard.
