Video shows ball of flames after SUV hits gas pump in Seattle

SEATTLE (KGO) -- Check out this jaw-dropping video out of Seattle. A gas pump burst into a ball of flames after an SUV went airborne and slammed into it.

Surveillance video captured the scene Monday night.

Police say the SUV was racing away from a nearby intersection after clipping a car and pushing it off the road.

That car hit a tree and split in half, critically injuring one person inside.

Witnesses say the SUV narrowly missed two gas pumps before slamming into the one in the video.

Amazingly, the two people inside were not seriously hurt. Police arrested one and are investigating whether the driver was drunk or high.
