Car slams into gas station in SoCal

FRESNO, Calif.

Officials with the LA County Sheriff's Department say the driver lost control, slamming into one pump and ripping it from the cement. Afterwards, it slammed into a second pump and the support beams, causing the awning to collapse.

A sheriff's spokesman said a deputy tried to pull over the car shortly before the crash-- but it took off. The two people in the car were taken to the hospital - and were listed in serious condition.

Investigators are now looking into whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
