The crash happened at a RaceTrac gas station near the intersection of State Road 436 and Line Drive on March 15.

In the video, you can see the maroon sedan speed into the parking lot when the driver lost control and crashed into the pump. Both the pump and car ignited and the Race Trac employee is spotted in the video running out to try to put out the fire using a fire extinguisher.

The passenger was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The driver, who was charged with DUI charges after failing a field sobriety test, had minor injuries.
