Authorities say a Lamborghini erupted in flames at a gas station in St Louis, Missouri in the US after a minivan driver pulled away from a gas pump with the nozzle still attached.

Kirkwood Police Det. Bob Bruhy says a valve is supposed to shut off when that happens, but instead fuel sprayed into the Huracan Performante's engine, causing the blue Italian supercar to ignite Sunday.

He says it was "completely an accident" and no one was charged.
