WINTHROP, Wash. - If you've ever been to Winthrop, Washington, you know that it is a beautiful small town in Okanogan County. Well yesterday that beautiful small town had a scene that looked like it was out of a summer blockbuster: an explosion at a gas station.
The incident happened on Highway 20 at Pardner's Mini Mart. Pardner's Manager Ashley Hansen says Saturday night about 9:15 a woman driving a car was leaving when she backed out of a parking space and hit a gas pump behind her. She then pulled forward and hit the gas pedal so hard that she came crashing through the store.
After crashing through the store she backed out, and again hit the gas pump again, only this time the pump and her car went up in flames!
There were two people inside the store at the time of the crash but thankfully no one, including the driver of the car was hurt, although police say she has been arrested for DUI.
