Car Crash In Seattle Sends One Vehicle Slamming Into Gas Pump

Video Uber Driver Crashes Into Seattle Gas Station Causing Explosion Car Crash In Seattle Sends One Vehicle Slamming Into Gas Pump

The crash caused the Honda to slide sideways into a tree on a planting strip, trapping the 35-year-old male driver inside the vehicle. It travelled two blocks at high speed after the first collision, went airborne, careened through the parking lot and mowed down two sets of pumps before hammering into a third. Once freed, he was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.

Attendants on Tuesday picked up the pieces after a series of dramatic events that ended at a gas station in North Seattle. They said the SUV may have blown a tire.

The video shows the vehicle positively fly through a pair of pumps, lining it up for a direct hit on one of the bowsers in the next set of two behind.

Uber spokesperson Tracey Breeden said the man has been removed as a driver for the service and the company is working with Seattle Police.

The crash produced a huge fireball that was caught on the gas station's security camera, and it looks like something straight out of a cheesy Hollywood action flick.

His passenger suffered minor injuries. Witnesses say the SUV driver appeared to try to brake, but lost control before slamming into the pumps.

The Uber driver was taken to a nearby hospital where investigators took a blood sample after obtaining a warrant, according to the report.

Now in terms of this accident, it's currently under investigation by Seattle police.
