Zero stars for Uber driver who caused petrol station explosion

Zero stars for Uber driver who caused petrol station explosion

Surveillance video shows the moment the SUV crashed into a gas pump and caused a fiery explosion. It travelled two blocks at high speed after the first collision, went airborne, careened through the parking lot and mowed down two sets of pumps before hammering into a third. After clipping an Accord (which hit a tree and split in half), an Uber driver took his X-Terra SUV straight into a gas pump.

The crash of a Seattle Uber that ended with a fiery explosion Monday night at a North Seattle gas station has claimed the life of a man whose vehicle was hit by the SUV blocks before it came to rest.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for a gas station attendant in Seattle, we can think of one or two who are now in need of a new job. His own SUV kept going, and there are witnesses who say he might have tried to break or had a blown tire.

The SUV also collided with another auto and pushed it off the road, causing it to crash into a tree.


Per officials, the driver of the auto, a 35-year-old male, is in serious condition at Harborview Medical Center. The 35-year-old driver of the Accord was trapped inside.

The 60-year-old Uber driver was unharmed, his passenger had minor injuries, but the driver of the other auto hit sustained serious injuries. Per officials, she was taken to the hospital with possible minor injuries.

Cleanup efforts continued on Tuesday in north Seattle.
