SAN DIEGO — A man crashed his SUV into a gas pump and nearby car at a Chevron station in Carmel Mountain Friday afternoon, causing both vehicles to erupt into flames.
The incident happened shortly before 2 p.m. in the 1100 block of Rancho Carmel Drive.
A woman pumping gas was standing just a few feet away but got out of the way in time. A Good Samaritan pulled the man out of the car before it went up in flames.
“Fortunately, she was able to get out of the way and I helped him get out of the car,” Dave Rekers said.
No one was injured.
