A driver was cited after hitting a gas tanker Saturday.

Police said the tanker was pulling into this gas station near Gateway and Kenworthy when the driver of a Jeep didn't slow down in time and clipped the tanker.

The Jeep then flipped over. The man and woman inside the Jeep have minor injuries, and the driver of the tanker wasn't hurt.

We're told if the Jeep had hit the tanker in a different spot, it could have exploded.

I knew that people here in El Paso just do not kn ow how to defensively drive. I drove a big rig for 4 years. I drove in L.A, New York City. Chicago, Detroit, Boston.... and to this day El Paso Texas still has more accidents on a daily basis than those cities. Just keep track of what is going on around you. Keep your head on a swivel.Keep your head in the game. It is not that hard. When you get to where you are going then you can let your mind wonder.
