How the hell does that happen!? I mean, how over-pressured do they need to be for the kegs to fail? I could understand one keg exploding - metal fatigue or something - but this is just insane...

The driver's name was Bob McKenzie - is this even a true story... or a story of some strange brew?

The driver said he saw smoke. If there was a fire in the trailer it could easily explode the kegs
