Ore. gas station worker escapes from crashing car

An Oregon gas station worker escaped serious injury when a car came crashing through a wall and into the cashier stand.

The unidentified worker was sweeping the floor inside the station in Springfield when an entire wall suddenly came down on top of him early Saturday.

The manager of the AM PM Mini Market, Casey Wilson, told KEZI-TV that the worker could have been seriously hurt if the car had moved just another foot. The worker was treated at a hospital and released.

In a video of the crash, the worker climbs out of all the debris and hurdles over the counter to get to safety.

Wilson says the driver was circling the parking lot and having an argument with his female companion when the crash occurred.
