No injuries after gas tanker collision

Two vehicles collided and struck a commercial fuel truck at the Tesoro gas station on the Sterling Highway approximately 10:15 a.m. Monday in Soldotna.

 

A woman driving a Jeep Cherokee turned out in front of a Roto-Rooter truck in the gas station parking lot and pushed the Jeep into a gas tanker in the process of filling the station tanks, said Soldotna Police Officer Tobin Brennan. 

Central Emergency Services arrived on scene shortly after and checked out the driver of the Jeep and reported no injuries, said CES firefighter Josh Thompson.

No damage to the gas station is reported and business has returned to normal after Soldotna police cleared the scene in 45 minutes, Brennan said.

The driver of the Jeep was issued a citation for failing to yield after she pulled into the gas station coming from the Peninsula Center Mall when the truck collided with her front-end corner panel, Brennan said.

No fire explosion occurred and the tanker and truck received minor damage, Brennan said.
