Gasoline crisis: the driver pulls a “knife” at the motorist as a fight breaks out in front of the gas station
It’s the shocking moment a motorist pulls what appears to be a KNIFE through a row of gas stations – before being run over.
The dramatic incident unfolded in Welling, south-east London on Monday, as drivers continue to panic about buying despite being told to refuel only when they need it.
Police were called but said when officers arrived they found no sign of either driver – and no suspects were identified.
The clip shows a man holding something in his hand while shouting through the window right next to the forecourt.
The car then collides with him – throwing him over the hood.
The man is filmed running to the driver’s side and repeatedly kicking the car, causing damage to the exterior mirror, before the footage ends.
Metropolitan Police confirmed to the Mirror that police attended the scene.
A spokesperson said: “Police were called at 2:37 p.m. on Monday September 27 to report a disturbance involving two motorists outside a gas garage in Bellegrove Road, Welling.
“Officers attended and found no sign of either vehicle. No injuries were reported and no suspects were identified.
“We are aware of footage online which appears to show the incident and will be reviewing it as part of our ongoing investigations.”
Fuels for Ireland urged drivers not to panic buying fuel amid Britain’s shortage, as there will be no disruption to our supply of gasoline, diesel and heating oil.
On top of that, Fuels for Ireland – which is responsible for Applegreen, Circle K, Corrib Oil, Emo, Inver Energy, Irving Oil, LCC, Maxol, Top Oil and Valero – said its members have no issues here.
