An Abilene man faces several charges after he left the scene of an accident at Kwik Shop, 1401 N. Buckeye, shortly after midnight Friday, according to Lt. Michael Kyle of the Abilene Police Department.
James P. Atkinson, 43, 501 N. Brady, Lot 33, faces three charges: failure to stop after an accident, failure to report an accident and driving while suspended.
The van driven by Atkinson backed into a gas pump and knocked it over at the convenience store. The collision ignited a small fire.
A police officer was able to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher out of his car, Kyle said.
There were no injuries. Property damage was more than $1,000.
