FORT MYERS, Fla. -- You could say that fate intervened when a Fort Myers limo driver was pumping gas this weekend.

The man had just moved his limo because the pump was giving him issues, when he heard sirens and saw a police chase approaching.  

The person in the SUV crashed into the pump the limo driver has just left.  "When I first seen it, I was like 'which way I'm gonna go,' because he was coming right for me," said witness Bob Calvert.

He says the SUV stalled for a moment, and the driver was able to flee the scene, where he crashed into a tree and took off on foot.  No word on if he was caught.

Another witness, Luke Campbell, shot several videos of the incident, you can see them here on his twitter page.
