Police Searching For Driver Who Caused Petrol Station Fire After Doing Doughnuts
Detroit police are looking for a driver who crashed into a petrol pump and sparked a huge explosion after doing doughnuts around a gas station.
CCTV footage captured the moment the individual was driving recklessly at the petrol station on August 22, before proceeding to smash into one of the pumps.
The pump, as well as the car, then burst into flames and, despite the vehicle being severely damaged by the collision, the driver still fled the scene.
In a bid to locate the culprit, Detroit Police Department has now shared the video online.

The department wrote alongside the video, ‘The Detroit Police Department needs the community’s help identifying a suspect wanted in connection to severe property damage at a BP gas station on the city’s west side.’
The post continued:
On Sunday, August 22, 2021, at approximately 11:00 p.m., in the area of 18137 Joy Road, the suspect was seen on Project Green Light doing multiple doughnuts in the gas station lot. The driver lost control, colliding into pumps and causing an explosion as well as fire damage to the vehicle being driven. The suspect fled the location moments later, abandoning the vehicle.

The suspect is seen wearing a blue Nike short set with white around the collar, yellow bold Nike lettering across the torso, a white vertical stripe along the side of shorts, and white socks with no shoes,’ the police added.
