Transformer explosion in New Jersey

US, New Jersey, Manchester: Manchester police were able to catch a transformer exploding and electrical wires falling to the ground right on dash cam video while on patrol.

As officers were setting up traffic cones and directing traffic, sparks were flying due to an arcing transformer. Transformer explosion was caused by heavy wind and thunderstorm.

Nobody was injured, even though a utility worker narrowly escaped death when handling a wire that was believed to be de-energized. The wire then caught fire as it struck the wet ground.
