A semi-trailer truck exploded this morning in Florida, after the Samsung phones it was carrying began exploding, killing 3 people and injuring 11 others.

According to witnesses, a series of explosion took place in the truck’s cargo trailer, setting it ablaze.

Within a few seconds, blazing smarpthones were flying in the air in all directions, hitting nearby vehicles at extremely high speeds.

“It was totally crazy! There were hundreds of flaming phones coming out of the trailer at bullet speed,” says Jamal Anderson, whose car was hit by three phones. “It looked like a huge firework with flames and explosions everywhere.”

Seven nearby vehicles were hit by the flaming projectiles, leading to a dramatic car crash involving 17 vehicles.

17 vehicles were implicated in a violent accident after blazing smartphones started flying everywhere, causing 3 deaths.

Samsung Electronics has already recognized many security issues with it’s new smartphone model.

Several people posted images and videos of charred Galaxy Note 7s online and said their phones had caught on fire or that their phone battery had exploded.

Samsung Electronics finally delayed shipments of its premium Note 7 smartphone, wiping almost $7 billion off its market value.

The phones that exploded were models that had been recalled until further tests have been completed.

  1. My Samsung Edge 7 had an issue 2 nights ago. I picked it up to see if it was charged yet and it was burning up. Safe Mode came across the display. I set it in front of a fan to cool it down. Now it will no longer charge wirelessly…only by plug in…and though it’s a lightning speed plug in, it charges very slowly. I have taken it off safe mode now and my main display has dropped several icons. Any idea as to what may happen like fire, explosion, etc? What should I do now?

  2. If you don’t update your phone, it will stop working???. That is why your S4 stopped working, the hardware was outdated???.
    It is just a handhelp pc people…get with the program. #webdeveloper
