Car Wash Nightmare

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.

It’s Labor Day Weekend, and a lot of people are out and about and wanting to wash their vehicle. What happens when your ride is on fire, and you’re trapped inside during the wash cycle?

That’s exactly what happened to one couple taking their truck through the automatic wash.

The couple was not only trapped in their truck, but trapped inside the tunnel with other vehicles.

The flames are shooting out of the hood, and the driver is trying to move, but the truck is stuck on the track.

Thanks to quick thinking of the couple getting out and the car wash employees acting quickly with fire extinguishers, no one was hurt.
