PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- Talk about a close call for one tanker truck driver! 

The tanker truck almost hit a gas pump at a Phoenix gas station Tuesday afternoon. 

The incident occurred at a Circle K near Seventh Avenue and McDowell Road.

Video from our drone showed the front of the tanker truck blocking two lanes of the intersection. That caused a road restriction in the area. 

Phoenix police said that a tow truck is in the area to remove the truck.

And the media wonders why they are thought of as lower than used car salesmen.....This is NOT NEWS!.....And it seems to be getting worse rather than better......Believe absolutely NOTHING you read.


Why are there 13 pictures when half of them are blank and there are only four others?


Not a single one shows the gas pump! That is amazing. You can't see how close the truck actually is to the pump (or even if there's a pump at all).


Too bad he wasn't successful. That might have cleaned up the place.


Was he picking up or dropping off?

Extremely slow news day. But then not much of what is reported anywhere is what I would consider newsworthy.


This is news???
