SAUGUS (CBS) — It was a close call at a Route 1 gas station Sunday afternoon when a minivan hit a fuel pump and the supporting beam to the gas station canopy.

Saugus Fire says due to a quick-thinking attendant, the damage was minimized.

The crash compromised the pump’s fuel line and the auto shutoff, but the attendant quickly shut the gas lines down manually.

Authorities say 15 to 20 gallons were spilled.

The driver was taken to Union Hospital. There’s no word on the driver’s injuries or what led to the crash.
