A scary situation was caught on video in Wayne, Michigan after a truck plows into a gas pump igniting a fire storm.
The Wayne Police Department is continuing to investigate how this happened, but for a family eating dinner across the street the incident was a little too close for comfort.
"It was like huge, it was just a huge fire," said Melinda Neilson.
She was celebrating a birthday with her family across the street at a Pizza Hut.
"We were like, 'There’s a car on fire at the gas station' and we all looked and came outside," said Neilson.
The gas station attendant was helping a customer inside when he heard a loud noise.
"Oh man big noise like explosion boom," he said.
A truck jumped the curb, hitting a light pole and plowed directly into a gas pump.
"We were like, 'Oh my god there’s a fire at the gas station,'" said Neilson.
Flames engulfed the pump and truck.
"The pumps get on fire. So first thing I shut off everything and try to call 911," said the gas station attendant.
It was a scary ending for a family out celebrating a birthday
"Very crazy. You don’t see stuff like this everyday," said Neilson.
