Accident at Gas Pump Kills One

An 18-year-old woman was killed at a 7-Eleven in Colorado Springs, Colorado after an auto accident caused the gas pump she was at to explode. In what is being described as a freak accident, a Ford Explorer was traveling through the parking lot of the convenience store and slammed into the right rear side of a Chevrolet Silverado. The Silverado was parked at the pump on the opposite side of the minivan the victim was pumping gas into. The impact forced the pickup into the pump, dislodging it and causing gas to spew out. The pump pinned the victim against the minivan.

As bystanders watched the gas ignited even as some were trying to get to the victim. Witnesses said they could see her holding her hands over her face with flames all around her, shouting for someone to help her. The pump was rocked by explosions that sent flames at least 20 feet into the air, and singed the canopy.

The 29-year-old driver of the Ford Explorer said her breaks had gone out, but police do not believe that was the problem. She was cited for careless driving involving a death.

The girl was home for spring break and was getting ready to leave on a road trip with a friend from college.

If you have lost a loved one in an accident similar to this, please contact an experienced personal injury lawyer in your area.
