CRASH IN GAS STATION PARKING LOT CRITICALLY INJURES ONE

-Authorities say a chain-reaction wreck at a north Harris County gas station left three people injured, but quick-thinking witnesses may have prevented a bad situation from becoming worse.
It happened around 2:30pm at the Stripes gas station on Falvel Drive and Spring Stuebner Road.
According to police, a green SUV was travelling northbound on Falvel when the driver lost control of the vehicle and careened into the gas station’s parking lot. The vehicle crashed into a tan SUV, which in turn struck a 78-year-old man who was pumping gas. From there the, the tan SUV crashed into a white pickup truck.
Authorities say witnesses at the scene jumped into action, possibly preventing a fire after the accident.
“The pump itself, the hose was torn off causing a fuel spill so we could have had a fire. Some quick action and some quick thinking; the vehicles were still running at the time, they got the fuel shut off. The fire department made a very quick response and were able to get that under control,” said Lt. David Mayes with the Harris County Pct. 4 Constable’s Office.
The Spring Fire Department contained the fuel spill fairly quickly and cleaned it up.
The 65-year-old driver of the green SUV and her 64-year-old passenger were transported by ground to Memorial Hermann Hospital in The Woodlands. Their conditions are unknown.
The 78-year-old man was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Medical Center. He is in critical condition, but we’re told he was conscious and alert at the time.
The passenger inside the green SUV told deputies she believed the driver blacked out or suffered some sort of medical condition right before the crash.
There is no word of charges against the driver believed to have caused the wreck.
