Gas From Overturned WTAJ News Van Could Have Set State College Ablaze

Last night’s riot at Penn State could have erupted into a massive bonfire after demonstrators overturned a WTAJ news van.

According to WTAE sports anchor John Meyer, who covered the riot last night, a stream of gasoline leaked from the overturned van into the streets of State College, where thousands of students had gathered.

“This unsafe situation could have been a whole lot worse,” Meyer told viewers this morning, referring to the riot, “as gasoline started to spill from that live truck and go all the way down the street for about half a block.  If anyone had struck a match all of a sudden, you know what would’ve happened after that.  So thankfully that did not happen.”
