CORPUS CHRISTI – Corpus Christi Police, along with Fire and Rescue units responded to a report of a U-Haul truck that exploded earlier today.

The report of a possible explosion at the corner of Meandering Lane and Player Street came in just after 10 a.m. Sunday morning.

A fully-loaded U-Haul truck, towing a sedan, was pulling away from an apartment complex in the area, when the cargo area of the truck exploded, sending debris into the roadway and near-by property.

According to police, the two people inside the truck were uninjured.

Officers at the scene say the explosion was caused by a leaking propane tank in the back of the U-Haul.
