Woman hoarding gas flees police, car explodes, she catches on fire after crash

(The AEGIS Alliance) – A South Carolina woman that had been hoarding gas attempted to get away from the cops in a car she stole and crashed into intense wreckage.

A Pickens County Sheriff’s deputy attempted to pull a woman in a 2007 Pontiac G6 over Thursday night after he ran the vehicle’s license plate and discovered it was actually stolen, officials stated according to PBS.

The vehicle driver, 28-year-old Jessica Dale Patterson, made an effort to elude the pursuing deputy, however, at some point she lost control of the car and it flipped over on the side of the street.

“The vehicle immediately caught on fire, and multiple explosions were heard inside the vehicle,” authorities said.

Patterson arose from out of the automobile ablaze herself, and the deputy pushed her down to the ground to snuff out the fire.

The suspect said to authorities she was actually “hoarding” many containers filled with gasoline in the trunk, which was the reason for the explosion and fire.

There was no prompt statement released on Patterson’s health condition or if charges will be filed against her. The incident is under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol.

The incident happened two days after the White House urged Americans not to hoard gasoline amidst the ransomware attack against the Colonial Pipeline.

The Southeast was dealt the heaviest blow by the lack of fuel. By Thursday morning, gas was once more streaming into the area.
