A 61-year-old woman was pinned between her car and a gas pump after a four-car crash at a Lithonia gas station, DeKalb County police said.
Her grandchildren were inside the her car at the time, according to Channel 2 Action News.
The woman, Stacy Moore, was taken to the hospital in critical condition following the Monday evening wreck at the Circle K gas station in the intersection of Covington Highway and Evans Mill Road, DeKalb County spokeswoman Shiera Campbell said.
Campbell said Moore was pumping gas when a gray vehicle sped into the gas station at a high rate of speed.
The car crashed into a pick-up truck, causing it to crash into a Nissan SUV, Campbell said. The SUV slammed into Moore’s car, pinning her against the gas pump.
Campbell said the people, believed to be between 16 and 20 years old, inside the gray vehicle ran from the scene.
No other details were released.
