Damn! this was crazy , a surveillance video released from a California fuel station shows customers running for safety as a car crashes into a fuel pump and causes the collapse of the metal awning above the pumps.

Gotta see this

HOLY S-word! Words cannot describe. Imagine, there you are pumping your gas. De dee dee, hum hum.. KaBoom!!!
Pay attention to your surroundings





Two people were seriously injured after their car slammed into two pumps at a gas station causing one to burst into flames. Police say they had tried to pull the car over before the crash but the driver sped off. (June 17)

The black guy ran like the cops were chasing him
but he dodged the car by inches, I don't know whether he saw the car coming or not, most likely he didn't, but he was saved by inches. Damn, he must have been in a real adrenalin rush.

One thing is certain:

Vin Diesel was NOT the driver of that car.

Damn I seriously thought that this only happened in grand theft auto. I've always assumed that the pump only receives gasoline while it's actively pumping so even if you hit the pump, you're not going to get an explosion, maybe just a leak.

Though it looks like I was wrong, and I'm glad that I am because that was awesome. This is already a great Father's Day, thanks.

There is a meter inside the pump that holds and measures the fuel that has to be activated (much like a valve) before fuel will come out the hose. This is the reason they have emergency cut off switches near the pumps or inside by the counter.

In any case, did anyone else notice a BP Youtube channel advertisement pop up over the bottom of the video when it was playing? Talk about irony.
