A gas pump in Spring Valley exploded yesterday after being hit by truck.

The owner of the Mobil Exxon station on Route 59 in Spring Valley says the driver of a Coca-Cola truck accidentally backed into the pump setting off a huge fireball.

The owner was able to reduce the damage by quickly getting to the emergency shut-off switch. “I was running like crazy when I saw it…the first thing that comes to your mind is that you don’t want a disaster,” says owner Ayman Jallad.

The gas station is now shut down while the owner evaluates the damage. Jallad says it could be weeks before the station is able to reopen.
