A car driven by a 70-year-old man has crashed into some gas tanks and a fence at a Caltex service station on Cobra and Brisbane Streets in Central Dubbo.

No one at the scene was injured including the staff and customers of the Caltex branded store.

Police officers, ambulance and HazMat crews attended the scene shortly after the accident took place however, the site was back to working condition by 9.30am.

Orana Local Area Command duty officer Inspector Jason Pietruszka said the incident wasn’t as bad as it sounded.

“The driver became distracted by something and ended up where he shouldn’t have.

“While he did go through some gas tanks there was never really the danger of anything exploding, and the staff on the scene did a really good job.”
