MACON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say a fiery car crash into a fuel pump led to flames that trapped a gas station clerk in Macon.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2gq8wG5 ) that Bibb County sheriff’s deputy Scott Rickert was patrolling nearby, and saw the wreck and fire Monday morning.

Authorities say Rickert pulled the clerk over the counter and out of the window of the cashier’s compartment.

The Macon newspaper reports that a Toyota Camry had smashed into the fuel pump, tearing it from the fuel island of the Circle K. The fuel pump then smashed into the building, where it burst into flames.

Authorities said the driver, a Stockbridge man, was arrested and charged with driving under the influence.
