OK, can anybody remember this one?

Late 50's-early 60's...

Premise was a group of maybe escaped criminals or something being smuggled in a gasoline tanker trailer.

Somewhere in the middle of the movie, a crack opens up in one of the bulkheads and gasoline starts leaking into the compartment where they're hiding, so they patch up the crack.

At the end of the pic, the police stop the tanker by laying tires in the road. The bouncing of the tanker over the tires opens up the patched bulkhead and they end up drowning. Somebody opens up a hatch at the bottom of the tanker and the fuel spills out, along with the glasses of one of the men.

Seeing this movie once more is on my bucket list :)

Thanks all!
