Crash leads to fiery explosion at gas station

Man blacks out and crashes into gas pump

NEW YORK (WFLX) - A 69-year-old man was driving into a New York gas station when he apparently blacked out and slammed into a gas pump and the cars stopped there.

A fearless off duty police officer risked his own life and pulled the badly hurt driver to safety right as the pump erupted into flames. Fortunately, they both made it out alive and both are expected to be fine.
