Man backs car into gas station pump, causing explosion

A man allegedly backed his car into a gas pump Sunday night in San Bernardino, causing an explosion that torched his car.

San Bernardino firefighters responded just after 6:15 p.m. to the Valero gas station at 2700 N. Del Rosa Ave., just south of the 210 Freeway.

Authorities say the man, who was not named, fled the scene. Police are now investigating and said he could face hit-and-run charges.

He was later treated for minor injuries.
