Driver in Boyd Co. Plows into Gas Pump

According to the Boyd Co. Sheriff’s Office, on Saturday a man significantly damaged a gas pump at the Clark’s Pump-N-Shop in Westwood. Police say the entire incident was caught on the store’s security camera and shows a white pickup truck running down the pump, then shows the driver backing up and leaving before authorities got on scene. Safety features in the pumps and inside the store did their jobs in cutting off the gas and preventing an explosion. The cause of the crash remains under investigation by Deputies, but it does not appear drugs or alcohol played a role and the manager at the store said the man came back later in the day and apologized for the damage he caused, which was estimated to be between $25,000 to $30,000.
