Elvis Was Fined

What is the connection between Elvis and this Esso station in Carlisle, Arkansas?

In 1955, Elvis and several band members were heading on Hwy. 70 toward Little Rock.

At this intersection of Hwy. 70 and Hwy. 13 in Carlisle, while driving at a high rate of speed, Elvis broadsided a dump truck and sent his Cadillac into a ditch across the highway from this station. Nobody was injured, the Caddy was still drivable but the gas tank on the dump truck was punctured. Elvis was fined $25 for the damage to the dump truck.
