Update: Man who crashed into employee, fuel tanker, returns to scene

Posted on Wednesday, July 21st, 2021 at 2:03 pm    

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The man who crashed into an employee and a fuel tanker at an OnCue gas station was apprehended by police after returning to the scene of the crime early Tuesday morning, reports KOCO.

The bizarre incident started when a small vehicle drove around the parking lot as an OnCue employee was outside changing trash bags.

For reasons unknown, the driver accelerated in the direction of the employee and slammed into him, pinning his leg between the vehicle and a post. He screamed at the driver to back up so his leg would be released.

The driver then reportedly backed up and appeared like it was going to strike the employee again when it then sped up and slammed into the fuel tanker instead.

As all of this was happening, the driver of the fuel truck was under his vehicle hooking up the fuel lines. He was there to refuel the gas station. Though he was pinned under the vehicle, he was able to escape, sustaining a large cut on his arm in the process. He was also covered in fuel.

A witness at the scene saw all of this unfold and ran to help the employee that was injured when he then saw the driver back up and head towards the fuel tanker. This sequence of events was also captured by security cameras on the property.

Following the crash into the fuel tanker, the driver exited the vehicle and stumbled around in a confused manner, and then fled the scene.

Police received calls concerning this event around 2 a.m. Monday morning. When they arrived, they found massive amounts of smoke and flame coming from the two crashed vehicles.

Just 24 hours later, at 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning, the driver returned to the OnCue.

The driver, an unidentified 21-year-old man, came back to the store in the same clothes he was dressed in at the time of the crash. He also had burn injuries. He was then taken to an area hospital for medical treatment.

Police will charge the man with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon once he is released from the hospital. Once he is formally charged, his name will be released by KOCO 5.
