The police call them mobile Molotov cocktails, with good reason.
Another suspected mobile black market gas van was involved in a minor collision this weekend, then burst into flames as the driver fled.
With some of the highest gasoline prices in Canada, Metro Vancouver apparently has become a lucrative place for black market fuel dispensed from rolling gas stations.
Two suspected mobile gas vans have crashed in the last month and police have arrested the drivers of two other similarly rigged vans.
The latest incident happened Sunday in suburban Surrey. An unmarked white van crashed into a pickup truck, then fled the scene. But it caught fire as it was driving away, then exploded. The driver managed to get clear and fled, according to CBC News.
Global News reported the burned-out van contained a large storage tank inside similar to one that exploded in a spectacular Oct. 7 crash on a residential street in Vancouver.
