Three people are recovering in a hospital in Greenacres after a truck crashes into a Greenacres gas station, police said.
The accident happened at the Marathon Gas Station on Lake Worth Road near Jog Road. Officials say it was a multi-vehicle accident.
According to witnesses, a Dodge truck tried to get across Lake Worth Road from a plaza on the north side to head eastbound when it struck three vehicles and then flew into the gas station.
A friend to the gas station owner said the building is a wreck. “Merchandise is all on the ground,” says the 34-year-old.
The gas station clerk was inside when it happened and said “it happened really fast”.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue said, three people were injured and taken to a local hospital. Witnesses said, the driver had to be extricated.
A 53-year-old man says his brother was one of the three injured. He was using the ATM at the time.
“Felt an explosion happen and he got crushed.” The man says he is going to be okay.
“Lucky one. But it was unpredictable.”The condition of the driver of the truck is unknown.
A building inspector was contacted to inspect the damage to the building.
