    A 70-year-old man who was having a diabetic emergency crashed into a Mobil gas station on the Hutchinson Parkway Tuesday, hitting several cars and a gas pump, which exploded into flames.

    Police said the driver rear-ended a car and struck a gas pump, which toppled over onto another car. The pump and two cars caught fire.

    Four cars were damaged and six people were hurt, but their injuries were not considered life-threatening, authorities said. The injuries were from the crashes, not the fires, police said.

    The crash shut down parts of the parkway at midday Tuesday between exits 23 and 25, from North Street to Mamaroneck Avenue.

    Authorities said the driver came careening into the gas station at a high rate of speed.

    He was not expected to be charged.
