New video footage of Wednesday’s explosion at the U.S.-Canada border shows the vehicle launching into the air before bursting into flames.

Two individuals were killed in the explosion caused by a crash at the U.S. side of the Rainbow Bridge, which spans the Niagara River, according to Al Jazeera. The FBI said that “no terrorism nexus was identified,” per the outlet.

The new footage released by Customs and Border Protection shows the vehicle traveling at reckless speeds before ramping off an unseen object and flying through the air for a considerable distance.

Subsequent security footage shows the vehicle exploding into flames. U.S. Customs and Border Protection are investigating the incident, according to TMZ.

The two people killed in the car crash were a couple who were apparently on their way to a KISS concert in Toronto, per TMZ. When they learned the concert was canceled they allegedly decided to go to a casino in the US instead. The incident occurred on their way back from the casino, the outlet reported.
