Sheriff seeks driver
KENSINGTON -- Authorities are seeking a man who used his vehicle to force a Minerva woman's car off the road and then drove his vehicle into gasoline pumps at Manfull's BP Station, 29029 U.S. 30 in Kensington about 10 a.m. Sunday.
The Columbiana County Sheriff's Department is investigating the situation, which appears to have stemmed from a domestic dispute between the woman whose car was forced from the road and a man she knows.
The Hanover Fire Department was dispatched after it was reported that the pumps and the vehicle that crashed into it had caught fire.
No injuries were reported.
No further information on the fire was available this morning.
