Truck Slams Into BP Gas Station in Ortonville [VIDEO]
Surveillance video captured the moment when a pickup truck slammed into a BP gas station on Ortonville Rd. in Ortonville. It happened in the early morning hours of Thursday, October 24th.
After the man crashed through the gas station's front entrance, he took some paperwork out of the truck, removed its license plate, and fled the scene.
Police later arrested 24-year-old William Edmonds. He says he had just gotten new tires and was trying to speed around the gas pumps to "give them a spin." An employee of the gas station said Edmonds had purchased beer and opened one before getting into his truck.
Two people standing near the entrance to the gas station at the time of the crash were not injured in the incident.
Edmonds was charged with reckless leaving the scene of an accident. The video of the incident is inside the video report from WXYZ below.
