WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Dramatic video released Friday shows a fiery crash and a daring rescue at a Westchester County gas station earlier this week, reports CBS New York.

The car slammed into a gas pump at the Mobil station on the Hutchinson River Parkway in White Plains around 11 a.m. Tuesday, New York State Police said. The video showed a man running away just in time as the pump went up in flames, and coming back to rescue the driver who hit the pump.

That man was New York State Police Troop NYC Senior Investigator John A. Vescio, who was fueling up at the time, state police said.
