Video shows elderly man crashing into Citgo gas station

The crash was a close call for some people in the area

DETROIT – Surveillance video from a gas station on Detroit's east side shows the moment an elderly man lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a gas pump barrier.

In the video, you can see people going about their business at the Citgo gas station when a vehicle suddenly comes into view. The vehicle can be seen crashing into the gas pump right next to a woman who was pumping gas in her own car.

The footage then shows the woman running away, and a passenger in her car exiting. 

The vehicle, which was being driven by an elderly man, crashed into a cement barrier which protects the gas pumps.

The vehicle was lifted about 4 feet off the ground but did not fully flip over.

A good Samaritan was seen helping the man out of the car.

It was reported the driver was an 82-year-old man who may have had a seizure when he lost control of the vehicle.
