A driver lost control and careened into pumps at a Jersey City gas station, sparking a fireball that was caught on camera.Authorities say the driver crashed into the LukOil station at the corner of 12th and Erie streets just before 7 p.m. Thursday night.

The car hit the gas pumps, sparking an inferno near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.

The driver of the car escaped injury, and a limousine driver at a nearby pump narrowly fled the flames. However, his limo was incinerated in the ensuing inferno.

There were extensive delays at the tunnel as firefighters battled the blaze.

Video of the blaze was posted on YouTube. CLICK HERE to watch.
