Camper Explodes On Impact Following Gas Station Crash

A camper exploded while it was being fueled up at the Harps gas station in Carl Junction.

News Talk KZRG spoke exclusively with Trooper Drum with the Highway Patrol who says a man driving a black pick-up truck suffered a medical episode while traveling full speed on Highway 171, ran off the road, went airborne into the Harps gas station parking lot, crashing though one of the pumps, and collided with the white truck that was pulling the camper. It immediately burst into flames.

Bystanders pulled the unconscious man from his truck. He was rushed to area hospital.

The Kansas couple that was towing the camper were not in their truck at the time, but their family dog was. The pup escaped injury.

The grocery store is closed at this time.
