Nobody was injured when a Toyota 4-Runner rolled into the Murphy USA gas station in LaFollette on Wednesday morning.

“By absolute miracle, nobody was in line,” said store manager Jessica Rouse.

Approximately 8:30, a vehicle parked at pump number 9 began rolling toward the store, jumped the sidewalk and crashed into the store, narrowly missing the register.

The vehicle was towed from the scene by Lyk-Nu towing. The store is expected to be closed for several hours.
