Six Injured In Collision, Fire At Hutchinson Parkway Gas Station

An accident at the Mobil gas station near Exit 25 on the Hutchinson River Parkway left six people injured on Tuesday, police said.

Two cars caught fire after a driver, who was having a diabetic emergency, crashed into a car pumping gas, according to Kieran O’Leary of the Westchester County Police Department. Thus began a chain reaction involving four cars; the car that was hit collided into another car, causing a gas pump damaged by the fire to fall onto a different car.

The two vehicles involved in the initial accident were completely charred, while two others were damaged by the rear-end crash and taken away on a car lift. Though three people were taken to the hospital, police said none of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening.
