HARROWING surveillance video shows the moment two cars crash into each other and take out two gas pumps that catch fire-- just seconds after a gas station attendant walks away from the pumps.
The Tuesday morning clip released by the North Brunswick Police Department shows two vehicles driving along Route 1 near Driscoll Road in North Brunswick, New Jersey.
As the black sedan in the middle lane starts to merge right without signaling, a speeding red sedan rams right into the lane-changer, flips to its side and skims the curb while smashing the two adjacent gas pumps.
Immediately the pumps catch on fire as the two cars come to rest.
This, just seconds after a gas station attendant walked away from tending to a silver SUV at the very pump that caught ablaze.
The North Brunswick Police Department posted the video online, adding "We are fortunate to say that there were no life threatening injuries reported. Just a reminder to please use caution while driving, especially days like today."

The crash and subsequent blaze occurred Tuesday morning as Tropical Storm Isaias bombarded the northeast with heavy rains and strong winds.
Driving conditions were treacherous, with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy declaring a state of emergency.
The governor told motorists to slow down, saying "Do not be on the roads unless absolutely necessary," adding, "if you MUST drive, take it slow, use caution, and leave extra time to get to your destination."
