DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Customers at a DeKalb County gas station filled up their tanks this morning, only to find they had basically filled up with water.
"I put 43 dollars in my vehicle, and when I was getting ready to pull up out of the gas station, my vehicle shut off," said customer Lakeshia Harrell.
A different customer, Martha Slaughter, said of her car, "I got in the middle of Glenwood, and it stalled. I tried to crank it back up; it went back dead."
More than a half-dozen cars needed towing at the DeKalb County Citgo station, on the corner of Columbia and Glenwood. Officials are still working to determine what caused the issues with the gas.
But, said Eric Poole of Keystone Petroleum Transport, "At the point where there were one or two complaints, and customers couldn't get off the lot, the store probably should have shut the pumps down."
The owner for Keystone Petroleum, which transported the gas, organized towing for the customers. Poole assured customers any expenses would be covered.
