A 70-year-old man accidentally backed his vehicle into a gas pump after stepping on the gas instead of the brake pedal. The 70-year-old man's car rammed through the pump and stuck the mother who was filling up her tank on the other side.

The gas pump immediately set alight, the mother seeing the fire, quickly ran to her car and took her children out of the vehicle. The fire set her car on fire soon after the rescue as well as the 70-year-old man's vehicle.

Fortunately, the gas station fire was subsided as the gas station attendants immediately hit an emergency button to shut off the gas flow from the main tanks, stopping further injuries or deaths.

The crash is currently being investigated by the police, they have reported that no one was injured after the incident.
