HUGO, Okla. (KTEN) — A police pursuit in Hugo, Oklahoma, on Monday ended with the driver crashing into the Hill & Son service station at the corner of Ward and West Jackson streets. 

Choctaw County Sheriff Terry Park said the female driver was fleeing from the scene of a hit-and-run crash.

She sped down Jackson, struck a pole in front of the service station, and then crashed into a customer's parked car and flipped over — landing on top of the building.

"The store was completely demolished as well as the gas station island, two vehicles, two parked vehicles, sustained damage in the collision as well," said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Darrell Wofford.

Jeffery Hill, his wife, their daughter and a customer were inside the office when the chaos erupted.

"Just heard this crash, and next thing you know the roof was falling down in on us, " he said. "And then, right here on the corner, the car was on top of the building. We was pinned in there; we had to kick the door out to get out of there."  

A police pursuit ended with a crash at the Hill & Son service station in Hugo on March 18, 2024.

The injured driver was extracted from the wreckage and was initially taken to Choctaw Memorial Hospital. She was later airlifted to Plano Medical Center in Texas for treatment. 

When Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers went to question her, she was gone.

Hill and Son Service Station has been passed down in the Hill family for three generations.

"I remember coming here with my grandpa a long time ago," said Todd Beason, Owner of the Twisted Stump in Hugo. "To get flats fixed, you know just whatever we needed done."

The incident caused extensive damage to the Hills' business. According to a Facebook post, the property was not insured.
