A 61-year-old woman was pinned between her car and a gas pump after a four-car crash at a Lithonia gas station, DeKalb County police said.
The woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition following the Monday evening wreck at the
Circle K gas station at the intersection of Covington Highway and Evans Mill Road, DeKalb County spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.
Campbell said the woman was pumping gas when a gray vehicle sped into the gas station at a high rate of speed.
The car crashed into a pickup truck, causing it to crash into a Nissan SUV, Campbell said. The SUV slammed into the woman’s car, pinning her against the gas pump.
A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told Channel 2’s Nefertiti Jaquez he couldn’t believe what she saw.
“We heard the noise, the crashing. We didn’t hear no braking or anything,” he said. “We looked outside and saw everything.”
Campbell said the people inside the gray vehicle, believed to be juveniles, ran from the scene.
No other details were released.
