Due to a gas leak, refueling at the station in Targówek ended. The driver forgot to take the “gun” out of the refueling hole and started driving. The installation has leaked.
The incident took place at a gas station at Staniewicka Street.
– The lady somehow broke the “gun” while refueling or after filling the car with gas. There was a slight gas leak. We wait until the gas in the installation disappears. It’s safe now, said senior trainee Bogdan Smoter from the Warsaw Fire Brigade after 4 p.m.
“She refueled and drove off”
Tomasz Zieliński, a reporter for tvnwarszawa.pl, was on site. He said that the incident occurred at a self-service station. – The lady driving the Opel refueled and set off without taking the “gun” out of the refueling hole. There was a leak and the hose broke. The lady called the services. The valves have been closed. The leak was quickly stopped, Zieliński found out. He added that the service team arrived at the site and repaired the installation.
– The entire rubber hose from the distributor broke off – the reporter reported. As he said, the hose is made in such a way that if there is a heavy load, the entire dispenser does not fall over, but the hose detaches itself at the connector. – This is a safeguard so that he doesn’t get away with all the pipes – he added.
