A fight broke out at a gas station in North Carolina on Tuesday as people scrambled to fill up their cars amid a fuel shortage caused by a cyberattack that knocked out a crucial US pipeline.
Video footage from a Marathon gas station in Knightdale, North Carolina, shows a man and a woman fighting over one of the gas pumps.
The man who recorded the incident, identified only as Rashaad, told WRAL that the woman had tried to cut a long line of cars waiting to fill up, and when no one would let her in, she crashed into a Honda at one one of the pumps.
Rashaad told WRAL that the man and woman fought until police arrived. The Raleigh Police Department and the Durham Police Department told WRAL that they didn’t file any reports on the incident.
The fight happened as more than a thousand gas stations in the Eastern US ran out of gasoline after a ransomware attack caused a partial closure of the Colonial Pipeline.
