Uber Driver’s SUV Crashes into Gas Station, Explodes in Ball of Flames

And the hits just keep coming for the ride-hailing company. After clipping an Accord (which hit a tree and split in half), an Uber driver took his X-Terra SUV straight into a gas pump. Luckily, the passenger survivedآ—I wonder how many stars she gave for this particular ride...

Witnesses said the SUV kept heading eastbound, and it appears the driver tried to brake then lost control. They said the SUV may have blown a tire. They said the SUV went airborne over a curb, through a parking lot, then plowed into a Shell Gas Station. The SUV missed two gas pumps, but hit a third and burst into flames, according to witnesses. Firefighters quickly put the fire out. A 40-year-old woman who was a passenger in the SUV was taken to a hospital with minor injuries. The SUV driver was evaluated at the scene for signs of impairment.
