• Roof collapses while man pumps gas at BP station

    Updated:

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man in Jacksonville was getting gas when a roof collapsed at a BP gas station earlier this week.

    Edwin Lopez, who was the only customer fueling up at the station, said he saw the roof lift up moments before it collapsed.

    Lopez said he ran to safety and heard the metal crash to the ground just a few yards behind him.

    "So, I looked up and saw the roof going up," said Lopez. "So, I look and all of a sudden it just came down, so I ran. It almost got me. I got lucky. Real lucky."

    Following the incident, Lopez said he was feeling lucky and would play the lottery at that gas station.

    Officials said a high wind was most likely the cause of the collapse.
