Wyoming police had to push a flaming car away from a gas station after its driver left it in there.

The Wyoming Police Department posted a video of the incident on Twitter Tuesday.

According to the tweet, the driver of the flaming car left the vehicle in neutral next to a propane tank.

An officer had to use a squad car to push the car away, but it kept rolling back, resulting in “bumper cars.”

“The SUV had a mind of its own,” the tweet read.
