WATCH: Lamborghini super car destroyed in a huge fire after a van rips off fuel pump during bizarre petrol station mishap

A Lamborghini erupted in flames at a St. Louis fuel station after a minivan driver pulled away from a petrol pump with the nozzle still attached.

Kirkwood Police Detective Bob Bruhy says a valve is supposed to shut off when that happens but instead fuel sprayed into the Huracan Performante's engine, causing the blue Italian supercar to ignite.

He says it was "completely an accident" and no one was charged.

Parker Gelber wrote in a Facebook post that he was driving a red Lamborghini with his friend driving a blue Lambo when they stopped for fuel. His friend was getting water when the fire started.

Another bystander captured the moments leading up to the blaze on video.
