Driver hurt in crash with gas pump in Scarborough
SCARBOROUGH (WGME) – A driver is hurt and a gas pump is ripped from the ground after a crash in Scarborough Thursday night.
Owners of the Oak Hill Mini Mart station say a truck collided with the pump at around 6 p.m.
Witnesses said that the driver may have suffered a broken arm, and a child passenger was transported but appeared OK.
The pumps were shut down immediately, but no gas was spilled.
One of the gas station's co-owners said the car went straight for the pump, going more than 30 miles an hour.
The owners estimate $20-30,000 of damage to the pump alone.
The rest of the pumps under the canopy could be operational again as soon as Friday.
