Dramatic dashcam video shows the moment an out-of-control truck slammed into gas pumps in rural northwest New Mexico, igniting a fireball of destruction in its path.
“Oh my f—ing, God!” TikTok user @extrezionx can be heard saying in the video the moment he realized what had happened at the Speedway station off NM-170 in La Plata.
The video was shot Feb. 4. The TikTok user told Storyful he was approaching the Speedway gas station to fill up during a road trip from Seattle to Mississippi when the collision that caused the station’s canopy to come crashing down happened.
“What the f—?” he asked twice before pulling into a small post office next to the gas station following the impact.

“I gave a statement to the local sheriff, and they needed footage for documentation,” @extrezionx told Storyful. “They also followed up with me stating the woman that I helped pull out of the truck had actually had a seizure.”
@extrezionx said the driver escaped with minor injuries.

Speedways are owned and operated by 7-Eleven. The company did not respond to a request for comment prior to this story’s publication.
