The vehicle finally comes to rest at the gas station across the street. Police say it's a miracle no other cars were hit.

However, the owner did sustain a minor injury while trying to chase down the vehicle.

Police said it was discovered that the vehicle had a mechanical issue which allowed the gears to shift without the brakes being pressed.
