Sometimes pictures say a whole lot more than words. Especially when you have photos of a fiery car wreck that the cops are still investigating and don't have much info yet to share.

Mysterious, Fiery Accident Shuts Down Part Of I-10

These photos, taken early Monday morning, show a truck moments after it exploded, scorching flames and debris erupting into the sky as enormous plumes of thick, black smoke billow upwards.

A Houston Police spokesman says the accident happened at about 10:45 a.m. today and involved an 18-wheeler along Interstate 10 near Studemont.

Other than that, police say, not much is known as traffic officers continue to investigate. Miraculously, no injuries were reported.
