Pickup Truck Knocks Over Manchester Gas Pump

A pickup truck knocked over a gas pump at Kwik Star in Manchester.

Manchester Police say the truck was parked at Casey’s General Store on West Main Street when it rolled backwards, crossing South 9th Street into the Kwik Star lot where it collided with a diesel fuel pump.

Some fuel spilled onto the pavement. It was contained and cleaned up by the Manchester Fire Department.

The gas pumps were shut down for a short time until they were determined safe to use again.

The driver of the truck, Dylan Hargens of Manchester, told police he had been experiencing problems with the truck’s transmission.

The incident was still under investigation.
