It was a terrifying scene at a gas station when a man lost control of his car and a gas pump caught on fire.

Westchester County, N.Y., police spokesman Kieran O'Leary said the incident occurred earlier this month when a 70-year-old man went into diabetic shock and pulled into the station, hitting a car and a gas pump. In the chain reaction, two cars burst into flames and two others were damaged.

Watch the video to see the crash, and a bystander rush to pull the driver from his burning car to safety. The bystander was later identified as New York State Police Investigator John Vescio, who happened to be filling up his unmarked car at the time.

Three of the injured were taken by ambulance to an undisclosed hospital. The others declined medical attention. None of the injuries was considered life-threatening. The names of the injured were not released.
