ROSEVILLE -- Investigators are looking into a fiery crash involving multiple vehicles along eastbound Interstate 80 Thursday morning.

The incident happened around 4:30 a.m. near Riverside Avenue in Roseville.

Video sent to FOX40 by Jon Westerman and Anthony Valdez shows a vehicle on fire under an overpass. In the video, explosions can be heard and a sedan can be seen parked or disabled near the vehicle that is on fire.

Westerman and Valdez were on their way to Paradise, working with a private traffic management service.

The smoke from the fiery vehicle caused visibility issues underneath the overpass but cars can still be seen driving through it.

Just as fire crews arrived at the scene, the sedan was struck by a pickup truck.

"That guy just came barreling through there, hit that car, launched into the air, flipped over onto its roof, went sliding," Westerman said. "And that’s when we put the car in drive and took off over there to that guy. We knew he was in bad shape.”

The truck flipped over. The driver was pulled from the truck by rescue crews and others who stopped to help.

The pickup driver only suffered minor injuries, according to the CHP.

The crash is still under investigation. What caused the vehicle to catch on fire as well as any injuries associated with that vehicle is unknown.

Investigators later said no one was in the burning vehicle.
