Car crashes into gas pump; everyone rescued

Posted: Updated:
Westchester County, NY - A New York State Trooper says instinct took-over when he made a daring fire rescue at a gas station. A Mobil station on the Hutchinson River Parkway in Westchester burst into flames after a driver slammed into a pump.

The pump fell onto John Vescio, a trooper filling-up his patrol car on the way to work. Vescio somehow managed to avoid serious injury, and after stepping away for a moment, pulled another driver to safety. Police believe the driver crashed after going into diabetic shock.
