A driver is lucky not to have caused an explosion after driving away from a petrol station in Malta with the nozzle still in his fuel tank.
The motorist, who has not been named, had forgotten to remove the hose before driving off, knocking over the fuel dispenser.
Shocking footage of the acccident in St Paul’s Bay on Tuesday morning shows a set of pumps bent over and lying on the ground.
The moment was caught on camera by 89.7 Bay listener Umar Khaan from Sweiqi.
A picture of the aftermath shows that a small blue Citroen had dragged the pumps from their foundations when it pulled off.
In the picture, the female passenger is seen standing outside of the car as the male driver swears into the steering wheel.
No one was hurt but judging by the look on the passenger’s face, she wasn’t impressed.
