MACON, Ga. (AP) - Macon authorities are investigating the cause of an accident that left a fuel truck in flames.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s office said a fuel tanker lost control and crashed at an intersection late Saturday night.

Police said the 57-year-old driver, Mark Godfrey, was going too fast as he approached the intersection. WMAZ-TV reports (https://on.wmaz.com/1uVGGmc) the driver lost control, and the tanker flipped onto its side.

The truck then exploded, damaging a nearby building. Godfrey was taken to a hospital for treatment. He has not been charged with any offenses.

Officials reopened the intersection Sunday morning.
