Police say their initial investigation revealed Vizquerra had lost control of the vehicle and struck a barrier before the truck caught fire. Leaking fuel, officials say, then caused a series of explosions.

Fire officials report approximately 100 gallons of diesel fuel leaked into the Kentucky River.
