WATCH: Mammoth fireball destroys trucks and huge chunk of motorway in fatal oil crash

Shocking footage has emerged of a brutal truck crash in Bolgona, Italy, which resulted in a massive fireball that's taken at least three people's lives. 

Like a scene out of Die Hard, only tragically real. 

The accident occurred when an oil tanker failed to brake when he hit backed up traffic on the Bologna motorway and as a result, rear ended another truck. 

The collision took place on Tuesday, (NZ time) and has injured a whopping 70 people, with a shitload of them suffering from second or third-degree burns.
