Several Injured in Fiery Gas Station Car Accident in St. Louis
Call it being in the wrong place at the wrong time, but most people expect safety when going about daily business like stopping at the gas station.
When a driver struck a parked car and gas pump at a local Phillips 66 gas station, passengers were injured and open flames broke out.
On Union Boulevard in St. Louis on Sunday afternoon, the driver lost control of his car and plowed into a parked van and one of the station’s gas pumps. Passengers in the driver’s car were treated at a local hospital.
In this case, the injuries were not severe but the frightening scene leaves many people feeling vulnerable about simply being out in public. The crash occurred in daylight, with no reports immediately surfacing about alcohol or substances being involved in the car accident.
If you’re in a car accident or become an injured pedestrian, be sure to stay calm and seek medical and legal help. After this gas station accident, the passengers of the van refused medical treatment despite the trauma associated with such an incident.
When vehicles collide and gas pumps catch fire, injuries may present themselves hours or days later. Everyone should be aware that contacting an experienced St. Louis personal injury lawyer can help you seek help for medical bills and financial stress after an accident.
