Employees at a local gas station got a scare early Thursday morning when a car burst into flames after crashing near the gas pump.

Surveillance video shows the moments when a car slammed into a pole at the Valero located on Calton and San Bernardo at around 5 a.m.

In the video, the driver loses control of his vehicle and as he is trying to turn, he crashes into a pole next to the gas pump.

Employees say they heard all the commotion outside and immediately evacuated the building in fear of a possible explosion.

Witnesses recorded the aftermath of the accident, showing the moment when the vehicle was engulfed in flames.

Authorities are investigating the accident.
