We had a terrible freak accident a couple days ago in Colorado Springs. A woman driving a Ford Explorer in a gas station parking lot struck a pickup truck. She hit it hard enough to knock the truck into a gas pump. An 18 year old girl was pumping gas and was pinned by the pump against her vehicle. A fire quickly erupted and she was burned to death, truly a horrible way to die.
The woman driving the Explorer claims her brakes went out but I really doubt it. More likely, she thought she was pressing the brake but was pressing the accelerator instead. Eyewitnesses claim she was going at least 20-25 MPH. The police are trying to determine how fast she was going but at the moment, she isn't facing felony charges, at least not yet.
