1 dead, 1 injured After Car Repair Explosion Accident

MIAMI (AP) - Authorities say one person is dead and a second
person is injured after some gases exploded while the two were
working on a welding project in a truck in northwest Miami.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Cristina Armand says officials were called shortly after 4:30 p.m. Thursday. She says the two men were welding a part of the truck when some gases inside the truck apparently ignited, causing an explosion. One person was
pronounced dead at the scene. The second had minor injuries.

The victims' names were not immediately released.
