WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Police have released security camera footage of the car that sped into a Mobil Gas Station on the Hutchinson River Parkway and crashed into another car, causing a fire and six injuries.
The video, provided by the Westchester County Department of Public Safety, shows the driver, 69-year-old Joseph Bucci, crash into a car that had just stopped next to the rear right pump on the southbound side of the highway gas station, and the gas pump itself.
On the other side of that pump is New York State Investigator John Vescio, who gets hit by the gas pump as it topples over onto his car from the impact of Bucci’s car. The gas pump erupts in flames immediately and Vescio quickly gets out of the way. He then runs back to pull Bucci, who was having a diabetic emergency, out of his car.
The video shows the fire grow, spreading from the gas pump to both Bucci and Vescio’s cars.
